Older women raise $3500 for food hampers

The Deepwater Older Women' Network at Woy Woy has raised more than $3500 to buy "food for hampers for the homeless and desperate families" through its Christmas raffle.

Monster Christmas Raffle

"Deepwater Plaza allowed our members to sell raffle tickets on Wednesday and Thursday, December 14 and 15 at no cost," said network secretary Ms Jennifer Brown.

"Stephenson's Real Estate offered a space outside their business at no cost so we could sell tickets during the Umina Beach Christmas Parade.

"The first prize in the raffle was a collection of superb sea pearl jewellery and a luxurious jewellery box.

"Second prize was a hamper of Christmas goodies, wine, champagne and many vouchers donated by local businesses."

"Third prize was a beautiful homewares box, a haircare pack and voucher, with a total value of $310."

The raffle was drawn by Member for Gosford Ms. Liesl Tesch at her office at 10am on Wednesday, December 21.

"This was a massive effort by the executive committee members co-ordinator Ms Genelle Solomon, secretary Ms Jennifer Brown, welfare officer Ms Diana Downie, Ms Sybil Ker, Ms Irene Dunn and new member Ms Caroline Medley."

Ms Brown said Deepwater Older Women's Network, Woy Woy was the largest branch on the Peninsula.

"We advocate for the rights, dignity and wellbeing of older women in the community."

Pictured at the raffle draw were Ms Sybil Ker, Ms Jennifer Brown, Ms Liesl Tesch and Ms Genelle Solomon.
