Morrisett Rotary Donate to the Mayoral Relief Fund
Published on 10 June 2021
The Mayoral Relief Fund is continuing to help bushfire affected residents in the Shoalhaven, following a recent $700 donation to the Shoalhaven Rising from the Ashes community group, on behalf of the Morrisett Rotary Club.
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor Amanda Findley accepted the $700 donation to the Mayoral Relief Fund in April from the Morrisett Rotary Club who requested these funds were provided to a local community group.
Clr Findley was proud to see the New South Wales community still has the Shoalhaven in their thoughts.
“I want to express my gratitude to the members of the Morriset Rotary Club for this generous donation to help bushfire affected residents in the Shoalhaven.” Clr Findley said.
“The Morriset Rotary Club asked that these funds were given to a small community group, which I am pleased to say they have. The Shoalhaven Rising from the Ashes community group provide many events which support mental health and wellbeing within our community, with events aimed at all ages.
“These funds will allow them to continue the important work they are doing within the community, helping our community heal.” Clr Findley said.
Shoalhaven Rising from the Ashes is a collaboration of the Catholic Communities of Milton, Ulladulla and Sussex Inlet, St Mary's Star of the Sea, and with volunteer organisations, community service groups, local clubs, businesses, schools and churches.
