Walkers donate funds to causes
OUR joggers are more worn and I think our bodies may have benefited, but our hearts are definitely full.
The culmination of the participation of Kyogle Mayor Danielle Mulholland, Kyogle businesswoman Leah Hobbs and myself in the Kyogle Community Gym's 100km May Challenge has seen $2000 go to two worthwhile local causes.
Last week Cr Mulholland and myself had the privilege of handing over that money to representatives of Kyogle Rotary and the Kyogle District Domestic Violence Committee to help towards their projects.
"We will use our $1000 towards education and doing up pamphlets to distribute to vulnerable women, men and families to let them know where they can go for help," the KDDV committee's Jacqueline Barton said.
"We are very appreciative of the money given to us."
Kyogle Rotary were equally happy with their $1000 and will put it towards their Boxes of Hope with Disaster Aid project.
"With this money plus donations from Casino Rotary, Kyogle High School students and the community we have raised enough money to send over four boxes to Nepal," Rotary's Peter Clarke said.
"It's great to think we are able to send shelter, cooking utensils and building tools to people who have nothing, with the help of the community."
