Fundraiser for firefighters' socks

The Woy Woy branch of the Country Women's Association is calling on Peninsula residents to donate to their new fundraiser to support Rural Fire Service volunteers from the Central Coast.

The branch is collaborating with Central Coast Disaster Relief to raise money to buy socks for volunteer fire fighters.

Branch president Ms Jane Bowtell said the Pulling Our Socks Up for the Firies campaign aimed to raise $20,000.

She said the money would buy enough fire-resistant socks for every firefighter in the Coast's 52 brigades.

Ms Bowtell said RFS volunteers were not currently supplied socks as part of their uniform and usually purchased special fire-resistant socks out of their own pocket.

"That means there's approximately 1000 volunteers in need of those socks right now," Ms Bowtell said.

"Our $20,000 goal will enable us purchase at least one pair for each volunteer.

"The socks themselves are Australian made from 83 per cent Merino wool and provide much-needed fire resistance for volunteers on the front line."

Donations can be made on the Go Fund Me website and in person every Wednesday at the Woy Woy CWA Hall between 8am and 1pm.
