The boxes were sent away to Samaritan's Purse.

We were very grateful to one of our members who generously gave a donation towards the freight cost.

After our meeting we held a Christmas handcraft workshop to raise funds to support sending our craft co-ordinator to Toowoomba for handcraft classes.

Hermitage Branch president, Rose Hill, will be our conference delegate and some members are planning to attend as observers.
