Prosthetic limbs donated to 29 children
A program run by a registered club has resulted in the donation of prosthetic limbs to 29 children.
Woy Woy Leagues Club participated in the Lids4Kids program, which was launched in early 2019 and worked with charity Envision Hands to produce prosthetics from recycled plastics.
Easts Group chief executive Mr Scott Bennetts said club staff had been encouraged by the generous support of the community in regularly donating lids.
"We collected 14,720 lids.
"This equals 36.8kgs and will provide 29 prosthetic limbs for kids," Mr Bennetts said.
Mr Bennetts said the club would continue the program this year.
"The goal is to get to 100,000 lids by the end of 2020," he said.
