So far through his maths tutoring fundraiser he has given at least $5,000 to these charities. “The Uniting Church has kindly allowed me to use the Minister’s office for tutoring sessions.” The Uniting Church of Coffs Harbour is located at the corner of Gordon and Vernon Streets. There’s also the opportunity of a group class. “If enough students, that’s a maximum of five, can organise themselves, there will be a class at the Uniting Church, Monday to Thursday from 4pm to 6 pm for 2-Unit General Mathematics, 2-Unit Mathematics, Extension 1 and Extension 2,” Drew said. These students would be charged $20 per head. “Again, all monies received go to the five listed charities.” “If you are interested, give Drew a call at the Uniting Church on 02 6652 7044 or his mobile on 0431351933.” By Andrea FERRARI Sign up with Drew for maths tutoring and help him help in-need charities.
