Push towards zero waste will mean cash for others

IT was a novel theme for their April meeting and a way for East Hills View Club members to promote the push toward zero waste but they didn’t expect to receive such a huge influx of pre-loved goods earlier this month.

During the club’s first market day, members were asked to bring in goods they no longer required to be sold to other members on the day.
This was in addition to their normal fundraising activities and all enjoyed purchasing a few bargains and a friendly haggle over prices.
Organised by Lois Pope and Jenny Blatch (pictured), the event was a big success and the first of many.
Bev Cheal says East Hills View Club sponsors three children from disadvantaged backgrounds through the Smith Family’s Learning For Life Program.
“This is a most worthwhile endeavour providing necessary educational equipment and experiences for these children,” she said.
“We also regularly contribute funds to the Smith Family for them to purchase resources which they then distributed to students in need as identified by their home school.”
