World Red Cross Day: Members of Blayney branch donned ‘vintage’ Red Cross aprons to celebrate World Red Cross Day at our meeting on Monday, May 8.

Winter warmer fund raiser: Our annual winter warmer stall and raffle was held at Bernardi’s Farm Market on Thursday, July 27. Members generously donated two great prizes. First prize was a tub of winter warmer goodies containing a myriad of items for all members of the family. Lucky winner was Tony Smith (ticket B47). Second prize, a pair of winter warmer blankets, was won by Justin (ticket B96) who was absolutely delighted with his win. We are grateful to the Blayney community for their ongoing support.

2017 Annual General Meeting: The AGM will be held on Monday, August 14 at the Uniting Church hall. Our special guest will be Zone 17 Representative, June Hutchison and we look forward to hearing a first-hand report of her experience, as part of the Red Cross volunteer team, at the recent St Ivan fires and Cyclone Debbie disaster.

Red Cross Volunteers – Aussie Superheroes: Recently the Australian Red Cross team asked a bunch of youngsters to draw what Red Cross means to them. You might be surprised to know that they see Red Cross volunteers as our very own Aussie superheroes. We hope you can find time to go on to Facebook and check out the words and pictures from six of those youngsters. And if you would like to read more Red Cross news, stories and events we encourage you to follow Australian Red Cross on Facebook.

It might inspire you to become a member - you would be most welcome.
