The Orange CWA are also putting a call out for any new members who may be thinking about joining.

“Our branch would love to welcome new members, it is not all about cooking, tea and scones.  We are active in many areas such as the Grants and helping drought relief with donations.  We are presently sourcing, collecting and preparing Mother and Baby packs to be sent to Papua New Guinea so any donations of goods would be greatly appreciated,” said Helen Karrasch, Orange CWA Publicity Officer.
