Easter Egg collection for Catholic Charities
The Annual Easter Egg collection for Catholic Charities is going ahead in 2021 in plenty of time for Easter!
Unfortunately last year the event was cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions. The Easter Egg collection and delivery are made possible by the dedicated students of St Aloysius College whose Year 10 students continue to put in a fantastic effort - well done girls!
Easter Eggs are delivered via trolleys, washing baskets, boxes and bags.
Catholic Charities would like to thank the students for their generosity. Photos from 2019 can be seen here!

The 2020 Golf Day went ahead on Monday 16th November and was a very successful day for the 97 players who took part.

The Annual Catholic Charities Golf Day raises funds to support Centacare’s Auricht House which provides respite care for families with children with disabilities. The event is possible due to our Major Sponsors, the Whelan Family/Premier Panel Services and Southern Cross Care. Also we want to acknowledge the dedicated support of our Golf Day Committee Chaired by Peter McCarthy as well as the Tee sponsors and players.
Catholic Charities joined with Centacare in commending the Golf Committee and players for their fantastic efforts in raising this money.
"...on behalf of Centacare and - importantly - those clients who continue to benefit from your support, please accept our genuine thanks; it is truly appreciated." Dale West, Director, Centacare Catholic Family Services.
