Recently, Snr Constable Rob Wylie was the guest speaker at the monthly meeting of the Red Cross in Tea Gardens.
His subject, the work he does with the local youth at the Police Citizens Youth Club.
Helen Janes told News Of The Area, “Rob Wylie was representing Hawks Nest and Tea Gardens Boxing Club.”
The PCYC, which is now housed in the Hawks Nest Scout Hall, is home to 25 youth, both male and female who are learning the art of boxing every Monday and Wednesday afternoon.
“We’re very grateful to the Scouts for providing a place for us to train,” Rob Wylie said.
The ladies of the Red Cross were also impressed with Rob’s talk on how boxing builds self confidence and skills for life management.
At the end of his talk the Red Cross presented Rob with a cheque $150 for the PCYC.
“We hope it will help to encourage our youth of Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest to participate.”
The Red Cross meets in the Masonic Hall in Tea Gardens every last Monday of the month.
New members are always welcome.
