Friendship and fundraising
If youve got some spare time and would like to meet new friends and fundraise for community projects, a new SCOPE club now being formed could be just for you.
The Ballina SCOPE Club is looking for women to help form a Lismore SCOPE Club and invites anyone interested to a coffee morning at the Left Bank Caf this Saturday, April 12, at 10am.
SCOPE stands for Service, Community, Opportunity, Purpose, and Education. Co-ordinator Marilyn Myers said many members are divorced, widowed or find their children have grown up and they have more time on their hands.
Were really all about friendship. Us Ballina girls have been overwhelmed by the friendships weve made its about having a fulfilled life and not feeling so alone, Marilyn said. Fundraising is certainly not the be all and end all, but at the same time its really lovely being able to help people. Last year the Ballina club raised $20,000 and we were able to help purchase equipment for Ballina Hospital and help a Ballina lady who couldnt walk to buy a scooter so she could get around. And thats just two of many.
Anyone interested in joining the Lismore SCOPE Club is welcome at this Saturdays coffee morning. For more information phone Marilyn on 6687 6766.
