The Parkes PA & H Association Secretary Liz Brown stepped into a Santa role recently when she donated various items to four welfare organisations in Parkes.
The items were donated by the Royal Agricultural Society Foundation (RASF).
Natalie Quince from Georgie’s Pantry received an assortment of items that will go into their Christmas gift baskets for needy families. The items included Lego kits, games, drink bottles, stationery sets, sanitiser, hand wipes and bath wash.
Liz also donated hand sanitiser and wipes to Vinnies, CanAssist, Men’s Shed and Georgie’s Boutique volunteers. The volunteers welcomed the donations as they are in contact with the public and handle lots of items every day.
The RAFS provide grants and scholarships to help rural Australians realise their potential through education, make a difference in their communities and achieve their ambitions.
The Parkes PA & H Association also received funding earlier this year to upgrade its luncheon room, committee room and baby change room and grandstand. Work has also started on a new animal nursery and environmental shed. More details will follow once all the work has been completed and ready for the 140th show in 2021.
