The Causeway Club was presented with a $500 cheque from Rebecca White MP in recognition of the important work they do providing friendship and support to older members in the Sorell community.
Ms White said it was important the Club continued to receive financial support to help them run the bus trips they regularly take to different parts of Tasmania.
The Causeway Club meets every second Thursday from 9:30am till 1:30pm at the Sorell RSL Club. The Club provides a supportive environment for older members in the community to play games, meet new friends and just have a chat. Run by volunteers the Causeway Club has no joining fee and an entry fee of $5 covers a 2 course home cooked lunch, morning tea and a cuppa.
The cheque was presented to the Causeway Club at a recent community morning tea held in Rebecca White’s electorate office in Sorell. The morning tea was an opportunity for people to network and to hear from Rebecca about Tasmanian Labor’s ideas for the community.
Those attending were invited to complete a survey on the aspects of our community where improvement is needed. The most common issues raised were the need to improve public transport infrastructure to and from Sorell and the need for better Centreline facilities at Sorell.
Rebecca White plans to host more community events later this year. If you would like to request an invite drop by her office at 33 Cole Street, Sorell or give her a call on 6212 2225. For more details about the Causeway Club give Coordinator Jenny Oates a call on 0409 047 456.
