Glenallen School Supporters and Volunteers:

Charlie & Emanuel singingDECEMBER, 2015:

On Tuesday the 1st of December Leon Ross and myself were invited and attended the Glenallen School supporters and volunteers luncheon. The School choir did a wonderful job performing a few songs and then we were treated to a couple of solo performances. Charlie performed with the music teacher Daniel and Emanuel with his teacher Mary. These children are very special as is everyone who works or donates their time to assist with the day to day running of the school. Leon and I left feeling very humble and appreciative at being invited to such an amazing school. If anyone has any hours to volunteer I’m sure the school would be very pleased to hear from you (Kerry Scarlett, Dec. 2015 newsletter).


Waverley Benevolent Society volunteers

"We provide food, emergency relief and support programs to people in need. We are a partner agency of Foodbank, and we strive to meet the immediate needs of families and individuals to receive adequate daily nutrition. We deliver food and interact socially with the community which helps to fundamentally improve the lives of people experiencing hardship."

The Waverley Benevolent Society is truly a worthy recipient with our donation increasing from $2,000 a month to $3,000 a month. The Society itself is run by a wonderful group of volunteers who enjoyed a Christmas get together at our Club which was funded by the Club. They thoroughly enjoyed the day and are so pleased to receive our ongoing support, for without it The Waverley Benevolent Society would most certainly seize to exist. The staff and board at the Club are busy donating dry goods, personal hygiene products and Christmas food items for the Society to distribute during the two weeks leading up to Christmas and for that I thank them (Kerry Scarlett, Dec. 2015 newsletter).



Waverley Benevolent Society


Waverley Benevolent SocietyNOVEMBER 2014:

The club has now become involved with the Waverley Benevolent Society (more info). The Society was established in the local Waverley community in 1970, providing direct food assistance and supermarket vouchers to people in need. This organisation is staffed by volunteers and works out of two very small rooms supplied rent free by the Monash Council. They supply and distribute dry and frozen goods only to the needy and troubled in our community. The board has supplied the society with an initial donation of $5,000 and will contribute $2,000 per month to the organisation to assist them with the purchase of the food and vouchers desperately needed to continue their good work. Our staff and board members have been contributing tinned and dry goods to help the society. Should any club member like to contribute such items they can do so by dropping them off at reception and we will ensure that they get to the society.
