The Queensland Country Women’s Association, in partnership with DV Connect Crisis Support, have been supplying hospitals and emergency services with ‘Care Packs.’

These packs contain useful toiletry items that are needed on a daily basis and are given to persons who have been through an experience that has left them without.

Packs include face washer, toothbrush and paste, soap, shampoo/conditioner and sanitary items. All goods have been donated by the community, QCWA continually collects these and more, so if you would like to contribute to this worthy cause then contact the Tin Can Bay Branch for a full list.

Each monthly meeting is concluded with a guest speaker. This month we are being given an insight into the forensic science field by the Queensland Police Service.

Information may include evidence identification and collection which will be a real life example, not like the TV shows beamed into our living rooms. These presentations are open to the public, so if you would like to join us come along at 11.30am to the meeting room at 18 Whiting Street in Tin Can Bay.

For more information on anything QCWA, contact Branch President Joan Barnier on 5486 4640 or 0488 979 241.
