The stall run by the Maclean Lower Clarence Hospital Auxiliary at the recent McMarkets raised the pleasing sum of $852 which will go towards the $145,000 needed to purchase a new ultrasound machine for Maclean District Hospital. The lucky raffle winners were Kaye Anderson and Maureen Kino.
The next fundraising event will be a garage sale to be held at the RSL hall in Church Street, Yamba, on the morning of Saturday January 19. There will be a wide variety of good quality items for sale and lots of bargains. Anyone wishing to donate goods is asked to take them to the hall between 1pm and 4pm on Friday January 18.
Members are reminded that the first meeting for 2019 will take place on Monday February 18 at 2pm in the conference room of Community Health at Maclean District Hospital. New members are welcome.
… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.
If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it.
For as little as $5, you can support the Independent – Thank you.
