Taking 20,000 punnets of unwanted strawberries from Sydney Markets and throwing in a few tonnes of white sugar from Manildra Harwood Sugars, helped make more than 2000 jars of jam to fundraise for disaster relief.
When Australian strawberry growers were sabotaged by the needle contamination scare last year, central to the proactive efforts to make something positive from growers’ misfortunes was the Country Women’s Association (CWA) of NSW.
The money raised for the CWA’s disaster relief funds program supports families and communities in need across the state.
As an active advocate for rural, regional and remote health issues across Australia, CWA also provides emergency funds and education grants for secondary and tertiary specialists, including nursing and midwifery.
