Headed by local volunteer Robyn Rooth, Woolgoolga volunteers have been busy sewing masks to be sent to Migrant Support Clients in lock down in Victoria.

“These people are struggling under State restrictions and lack of opportunities,” Mrs Rooth said.

“Red Cross supports hundreds of vulnerable individuals and families and our local Woolgoolga branch members responded with a sewing bee to make reusable masks to help meet the demand.

“Great camaraderie and quite a few laughs, supplemented with strong coffee, produced a bundle of masks to be posted south.”

The branch has also arranged for a collection point at Diggers in Woolgoolga, for those who wish to donate reusable masks.

“Our members and volunteers are also busy knitting our Trauma Teddies which are always in high demand.”
