The Wonthaggi Group was formed as an affiliate Group of the West Gippsland Branch in September 1982 under the Presidency of Brian O’Garey.
The Wonthaggi Uncle Bobs Club have organised the GFA doorknock collection in this area since 1983. Whilst numbers may have been down the collectors worked very hard and the community again dug deeply to support the Appeal with over $27,000 raised. The enthusiastic collectors at Cape Paterson were delighted with their efforts raising over $8,500, the Kilcunda CFA and community friends collecting $1,690, the George Bass Hotel patrons raising $4,041, the walk from Kilcunda to Wonthaggi, “Walk for Mary”, with around 170 participants contributed $1,862 and Safeway a further $1,699.
Appeal organiser from Uncle Bobs Club, John Duscher warmly thanked the Wonthaggi CFA for hosting the Appeal, all the community volunteers for their terrific effort once again, another great total to be very proud of and a magnificent result for such an important cause. Congratulations also to the Wonthaggi Workmen’s Club on another outstanding fundraising effort for the Children’s Hospital.
