On 3rd June Cardwell Meals on Wheels Incorporated celebrated 40 years of service to the Cardwell community at Seabreeze Café Lounge.  An enjoyable evening was enjoyed by current and past volunteers and clients with the Mayor Councillor Mark Nolan and his wife, Councillor Barry Barnes and his wife and also Winston Boysen, Service Manager of Churches of Christ Rockingham Home for the Aged, where our meals are sourced, along with members of kitchen staff in attendance. 

The raffle was supported by Cardwell Art Gallery members Daryl Dickson, Jane Arnold, Libby Clegg and Annette Horner who donated their amazing art work for the prizes.  We sincerely thank them for their generosity which provided funds needed to support our organisation.

Previously, Nick Dametto MP (who was unable to be present on the evening) had presented a framed certificate defining the long service to the community to our President Bev Altadonna, along with a $300 donation.  We extend our appreciation to Nick for his support.

Our organization was pleased to receive a recent donation from Woolworths and Reckitt Benckiser of shopping bags which contained various cleansing and sanitizing products for distribution to our clients, which has since been provided to them.   

If anyone requires Meals on Wheels services or wishes to become a volunteer deliverer please contact Lisa Cartwright, Convenor on 0428980104 or email cardwellmow@hotmail.com  Meals are provided every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at a cost of $11 per meal and they are sourced from Churches of Christ.
