WITH $1,500 profit left over from their woodshow in March, the Woodturners of the Goulburn Valley Inc. decided it would be best to donate the funds back into the community, passing $750 to the Shepparton Search and Rescue Squad and $750 to Goulburn Valley Hospice Care Service.
Woodturners of the Goulburn Valley Inc President, Don McCrabb said, “We like to donate to charities who are going to keep it in the local area.
“Hospice is a great cause to donate to. There are many people we know who have used the facility and services of hospice and none of us know what is ahead of us and when we will need their services.
“We are proud to be able to support such an important service for the community.”
Goulburn Valley Hospice Care Service Executive Manager, Carmel Smith said, “We are just so appreciative to have such support from the local community.
“The service we provide is for the community and these donations help to allow us to continue to help our community’s families when they are in need the most.”
