Woy Woy CWA members have spent the last few months busily knitting and crocheting for the ensuing colder months.
The group decided to send the goods to Lismore after the CWA evening branch in Lismore put the call out to all NSW CWAs asking for help.
“In true CWA style we gathered what we had and they have headed off to Lismore via Australia Post,” Woy Woy CWA president, Jane Bowtell, said.
“We are happy to supply them with just over 100 beanies, 40 scarves and a couple of dozen bed socks and slippers.
“The importance of supporting other CWA branches is often at the forefront of what we do.
“All CWAs, wherever they may be, are always connected tightly to their community so at a grass roots level they are aware of community needs and it is our pleasure to help our CWA sisters when and if we can.”
The goods will be used to help residents of Lismore and surrounds as they rebuild following flooding earlier this year.
“With the extremely cold weather, these will help local residents stay that little bit warmer when many are still struggling to gain access to proper heating,” Bowtell said.
All goods were either made or donated by members.
