NWAICA’S saving Bell

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

Meet Beverley Bell: One of NWAICA’s outstanding supporters who selflessly lends a hand every week:

Once a week Ms Bell goes to Brumby’s in McDowall to collect surplus bread, rolls and other delicious bakeries that are left unsold on the shelves at the end of day.

She then brings the baked goods to NWAICA, so we can distribute them to local community families in need.

“I hate to see food going to waste”, says Ms Margaret Bell, NWAICA’s kind helper.

Boys & Girls yarning circles

Monday, April 30th, 2012

In March, NWAICA started a trial program of yarning circles at local schools and targeted community, as a part of NWAICA’s Sport & Recreation initiatives. The first yarning circle for 2012 started at Grovely State School with a Boys Yarn. The group has about 14 young men who attend weekly meetings and learn about themselves, their community and talk about issues relevant to them.
A Girls Yarn has started at Everton Park State High. Both the Boys and Girls Yarns include a healthy breakfast option. Thanks to all staff and community volunteers who are participating in these groups.
