Bonny Hills CWA branch will host a Centenary Morning Tea this week that is firmly focused on mums and bubs.

The Centenary Morning Tea will celebrate 100 years of the Country Women’s Association in NSW and the admission price will be donated to Port Macquarie Base Hospital’s Maternity Unit.

Branch president Fran Adams said the CWA was founded by women who were passionate about improving outcomes for those who lived in rural and regional NSW.

“In 1922, the foundation members of the CWA fought for health facilities in regional and remote NSW, immediately starting work on setting up baby health care centres,” Ms Adams said.

“One-hundred years on, we are still here and still bringing about significant changes across the state.

“Our Bonny Hills branch wanted to do something special to celebrate our organisation’s proud history, and return to our founding principle of supporting mothers and their babies.

“Our local hospital’s midwives are dedicated to providing the best care possible to new mothers and their babies, so we are delighted to be able to host this fundraiser in support of this important service.”

The Centenary Morning Tea will be held at the Bonny Hills Community Hall in Graham Street, Bonny Hills, from 10am to 12 noon on Wednesday 14 September.

Entry is $10. RSVP frances.adams1@bigpond.com.au
