Last week ladies from the Drop In Centre, run by the Uniting Church made a generous donation to the Narooma Men’s Shed to help with the building of the new men’s shed.

The Drop In Centre is run by ladies from the Narooma Uniting Church. They have many volunteers from the community, without whom they could not operate. It is a not for profit shop with all the money raised, after paying our overheads, going to local charities, as well as some distant ones, for instance Angel Flight. It is also meant to be as it sounds, a place where folk can drop in, have a cuppa and biscuits and a chat. They rely totally on local donations, and welcome all clean goods except for electrical and furniture. Some of the regular organisations supported are the Moruya Hospital Auxiliary, all the Schools and Fire Stations in our area, Animal Welfare League and Nardy House. And of course the Mens Shed.
