We will be holding an Information Booth for QCWA and Country Kitchens at the Tin Can Bay Markets on 18 March, there will also be craft Items for sale.

Come along for a chat, sample some foods and learn a bit about what we do. We are a lot more than just scones and jam, we are a network of dedicated volunteers which has supported our communities for over 100 years.

Branch Member Diana made and donated 27 handmade bags to the children of Grades 1 and 2 at the Tin Can Bay P-10 State School. Diana’s daughter, Sandra, is their teacher and the individually patterned bags are in keeping with the indigenous theme in Sandra’s classroom. Well done Diana.

At the February Craft and Coffee morning nineteen Branch members and friends listened to a talk presented by Sue from Carers Gateway Australia, it was very interesting to find out what support services are available for carers.

Carer Gateway, is a new Australia-wide network which is made up of Carer Gateway service providers. Carers Gateway will talk you through what is needed and help you to find local services and support to assist you in the role as a Carer.
