Cunningham's CWA Mother's Day function all fun and charity

PREPARATIONS are underway for the Country Women's Association Cunningham branch's annual Mother's Day function on Wednesday.

The function is being held at the Cunningham Hall, with all proceeds going to maintenance of the hall and various charities as usual.

CWA Cunningham branch president Mary Devereux said the day was all about a combination of fun and raising money.

"We have a fashion parade, thanks to Noni-B, with local models and we have about five people taking part in three skits," Mrs Devereux said.

"We've got a two-course luncheon, lucky door prizes, a bring-and-buy store and we finish off with a mini cent sale.

"The funds from the day go into a CWA pool, which will then be used to pay for maintenance on the Cunningham Hall throughout the year as well as go to a variety of charities.

"We donate to many different charities, with RACQ Careflight and St Vinnies being a couple of examples."

Mrs Devereux said people could also bring items along to be won by others.

"We all often bring a few items along each," she said.

"It is not compulsory to bring a prize along but everyone sort of does anyway, it is just something we do anyway.

"During the year, people also knit items for premmie babies, which we then donate to those who need them."

Mrs Devereux said she was looking forward to a night of laughs and socialising.

"It's always lovely to see all of the familiar faces, as well as the people we haven't seen before," Mrs Devereux said.

"People seem to enjoy the function and there is usually something for them to laugh at with the skits and other various activities we have going on.

"I'm pretty excited for it."

A bus will leave from Grafton St in Warwick at 9.30am in order for the day to begin at 10am.

The bus will then leave Cunningham around 2.30pm with the aim to get passengers back to Warwick by 3pm.

Around 80 tickets have been sold so far.

Tickets cost $15 each, call 4661 4612 for more information.
