The vital work of Lifeline on the NSW central coast has been boosted by a couple of welcome and timely donations from the Central Coast Women’s Golf Association.
The ten Central Coast Women’s Golf Association (CCWGA) clubs combine their resources annually to support a local charity, organise fund-raising days, and conduct raffles at district events.
In 2020, Lifeline was selected to be the district’s recipient charity.
Despite the impact of COVID-19, in August last year, the CCWGA presented a cheque for $10,000 to Lifeline to assist the organisation in delivering mental health support services to people in need across the Central Coast.
With the current pandemic showing no signs of easing, and demand for the services which Lifeline provides growing due to restrictions on everyday life, CCWGA decided to extend its support into 2021.
“Lifeline do an amazing job on the Central Coast, supporting people with mental health-related challenges,” District Treasurer Gay Saines said.
“Since early last year when COVID-19 first became an issue, the number of people needing their support has increased dramatically.”
The ladies made good on their commitment to support the charity for another year and earlier this month presented another cheque for $15000 to Lifeline.
“Despite the disruptions caused by Covid-19, the ladies at all of the clubs have done a magnificent job of raising money for Lifeline Central Coast.”
“There are still some events to be run between now and Christmas, and the target is to donate another $10,000 of which close to $5,000 has already been raised,” she added.
