The Friends hold an annual trivia night in winter. The 2020 Trivia Night was scheduled for September, but the covid risks this year mean we have had to postpone it to a date to be fixed.
The raffle is on. With a couple of changes. The prizes this year are Gourmet Basket Hampers. And most of the ticket sales will be on line. Raffle will be drawn on 26 November, so you can get your hamper in time for the summer holidays. Tickets are $5 each or $20 for five:
The committee meets on the second Tuesday of each month.
AGMs are held annually (surprise!), generally in the second half of the calendar year.
A principal activity of the Friends is to raise money for repair of the Old Hospital as an indicator of strong community support for the project. The Old Bega Hospital Reserve Land Manager actively solicits grants from government and non government sources. Contributions are most welcome. Anyone who feels they may be able to make a significant contribution at some stage, either financially or by provision of materials or services, would be welcome to discuss it with either or both the Friends or the Trust. Contact Us.
The donation form includes details of the Friends bank account. As donations are not tax deductible, receipts will be issued only on request. If you do not require a receipt, donations can be made direct into the bank account without using the form - just put 'donation' into the description box when making the deposit.
