Red Cross appeals for generosity

Coffee Club proprietor John Kenny and St Johns College Woodlawn year 11 students Georgia Urquhart and Sam Lawton are urging people to give generously during this weekends Red Cross Calling Appeal.

Lismore residents are being asked to dig deep this weekend for a good cause the annual Red Cross Calling Appeal.

On Sunday, March 4, hundreds of local high school students and other volunteers will doorknock the area in a bid to top last years fundraising effort of more than $150,000. More volunteers are still needed and anyone with a few hours to spare is urged to call the Red Cross on 6622 3244.

As well as the Sunday doorknock appeal, anyone buying a cup of coffee at the Coffee Club in Lismore Shopping Square on Saturday, March 3, will be donating indirectly to the appeal as 50 cents from each cup sold will be given to Red Cross.

The Red Cross provides a variety of services locally including Telecross, which monitors the well-being of elderly people living alone, and Hands On, where volunteers visit elderly people to give them a massage, manicure or first-aid training.

If you miss the doorknocking this weekend, you can still make a donation at www.redcross.org.au or phone 1800 150 058.
