Gosford Rotary donates $5000 to Mingaletta
The Gosford City Rotary Club has raised $5000 to support Mingaletta in Umina.
Club president Mr Paul Jones presented a $5000 District Grant to provide additional financial support for important programs like the Didge and Dance Group at Mingaletta.
"Rotarians work hard to raise funds to support initiatives making a tangible difference at the grassroots level.
"Mingaletta is an ideal partner for us because we can see the difference these programs make to our local community.
"We can also get involved in a voluntary capacity to support Mingaletta with general cleanups, barbecues and family days for Mingaletta members," Mr Jones said.
Mingaletta Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Corporation chairperson Ms Dianne (Aunty Di) O'Brien said: "It's great to collaborate with Gosford City Rotary.
"Rotarians respect the work we are doing here and want to help out.
"Our programs are all about building strength, identifying any issues in our community and working alongside our members to solve them."
Gosford City Rotary recently held a book launch for Aunty Di's memoir "Daughter of the River Country" to raise the funds for Mingaletta.
