MEMBERS of the local Country Women’s Association (CWA) have raised $500 to show their support for the National Centre for Farmer Health (NCFH).
The Hamilton Evening Branch of the CWA organised a successful movie night in October last year and several members visited the NCFH this week to hear more about the centre’s work.
Branch president, Natalie Templeton said the CWA was keen to support the NCFH, which was seeking funding from state and federal governments to continue its work.
“Quite a few of our members are from farming backgrounds and we recognise the support the NCFH provides to our families,” Ms Templeton said.
“The Hamilton Evening Branch of the CWA provides opportunities for social interaction and to learn new skills. We also support local causes where we can.”
The funds will be used to purchase a portable fridge/freezer for transporting samples collected during research and health assessments.
NCFH director, Sue Brumby said they were grateful for the local support shown by the Hamilton Evening Branch CWA.
