Country women care for kids
The Country Womens Association Lismore branch handed out $350 scholarships to 11 deserving local school children at a special presentation at the East Lismore Bowling Club recently.
Aiden Cubis from Ballina High School (pictured above) was presented with his CWA scholarship by Lismore mayor Merv King.
Giving these children a helping hand is an extremely satisfying thing to do, said CWA Lismore chairperson, Jan Clifford. If we can raise the self esteem of a child by giving them a contribution towards uniforms, or sport fees, then the money is definitely going to a good cause.
