A heartfelt thanks to all the Claddagh volunteers who staffed our Sausage Sizzle at Bunnings Malaga on Sun the 13th June. The impact of COVID-19 has meant that we have not been able to hold all our normal fundraising events. At the same time, we have seen a big increase in requests for help from the Irish community because of COVID-19. So this sausage sizzle fundraiser was more important to us than ever before.
Fifteen volunteers helped out on two hour shifts through the day. They worked hard and had great craic. Together we raised over $1000 which could be used to cover rent for a homeless person, grocery vouchers for a family struggling because of emergency medical needs or counselling for an individual with mental health issues.
If you’d like to help out at the next sausage sizzle or register as a volunteer to be alerted about all Claddagh volunteer opportunities contact Claddagh coordinator, Anne Wayne on firstname.lastname@example.org.
