Casting for refuge help

LOCAL fishers are trying to reel in support for one of our community’s most valued services.

The Coffs Harbour Deep Sea Fishing Club is encouraging its members and visitors to help the Warrina Women and Children’s Refuge with donations of household items, linen and clothing.

Club secretary manager Malcolm Devine said the refuge, which provides short-term accommodation for women and children escaping domestic violence, deserved support.

“We are encouraging members and guests to donate clothing and domestic items by placing them in two large Handybin Waste Services bins in the foyer,” he said.

“We are seeking women and children’s clothes, new underwear and socks, as well as school uniforms.”

Items including aluminium foil, cling wrap, clothes pegs, cleaning products, kitchen utensils, dishcloths, cutlery, brooms and mops would also be useful for the refuge.
