Wimmera Hospice Care Auxiliary president Lea Crammond has praised Horsham secondary college students for supporting one of the organisation’s major annual fundraisers.
The auxiliary hosts a Mother’s Day lunch in Horsham’s St Andrew’s Uniting Church hall each year to raise money for vital medical equipment for people in hospice care.
Mrs Crammond said this year’s lunch was a great success.
“Horsham College VCAL hospitality students served and cleared away the meals, washed dishes and helped with the clean up,” she said.
“They were outstanding help – polite and courteous and extremely efficient and were ably guided by their teacher Celia Fairley.”
Mrs Crammond said a group of St Brigid’s College students helped set up chairs in the Uniting Church hall under the guidance of Lesley Lannen.
“They were fantastic support to the auxiliary and really made the task so much easier for us,” she said.
“It means so much to our auxiliary to have them on board.
“They are great ambassadors of their schools. We are certainly grateful for their wonderful help and really appreciate the effort made by the teachers involved. What a great way to teach by example.”
The auxiliary raised about $3000 from the lunch, which will go towards providing medical equipment to people with life-limiting illnesses in the region, with no cost to the recipient.
“We are really very proud and humbled to be able to offer this service,” Mrs Crammond said.
