CWA branch has morning tea with youth service
Members of the Woy Woy branch of the Country Women's Association held a morning tea with the team from Evolution Youth Service on September 4 as part of the Association's nationwide Awareness Week.
Woy Woy branch members have a long history of supporting Evolution in their work with at risk young people, said branch president Ms Jane Bowtell.
"For the past two years, we have supported Evolution Youth Service.
"Evolution is a free service delivering support and assistance to young people and their families.
"They help navigate issues such as drug, alcohol and gambling addiction, domestic violence and mental health.
"They believe in the power of a conversation, particularly in the mental health space.
"This year, thanks to the amazing support of our community we were able to present them with a cheque for $2000.
"These funds will be used to help young people on the Peninsula and greater Central Coast.
"It will help purchase birth certificates, Opal cards, driving lessons, photo identification, toiletries and so much more.
"These small things can make a huge difference to a young person who is struggling.
"We would not be able to do this without community support," Ms Bowtell said.
"We are at our hall every Wednesday from 10am.
"The cuppa is a gold coin (going towards sponsorship of our Guide Dog, Sunny) but the chat is free," Ms Bowtell said.
