Volunteers of Bingara Wattle Arts and Crafts have kindly donated $1000 to Friends of Touriandi. The decision came after they heard that the Friends of Touriandi were raising funds to purchase a bus with wheel chair access to enable the transportation of elderly residents to doctors appointments and social events.

The women work many hours to keep Bingara Wattle Arts and Crafts open for the community and visitors with all funds raised going back into the community.
With this years funds the ladies handed over $1000 to Friends of Touriandi members on Friday at a morning tea in the shop. Brenda Pankhurst, Fay Macartney and Lee Loudon were present to accept the cheque from Directors Julie, Pam and Judy with volunteers Lyn Crawford and Rose Anderson.
"The residents of Touriandi will be very pleased with the gift and the women of Bingara Wattle do a fantastic job and are very generous in their efforts to give back to Bingara,” said Brenda Pankhurst.
Bingara Wattle Arts and Crafts is a community of volunteers who give their time freely with no monetary reward for the many hours they put in. The many artists and crafters that work tirelessly to stock the shop are very much appreciated.
Many visitors to Bingara have commented on the range and prices of the hand made goods and say there are none like it across Australia.
If you have a craft you would like to share or sell in the shop or if you have a day to spare and would like to volunteer call in and have a chat to any one of our ladies volunteering in the shop. Bingara Wattle is open Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm and Saturday 9am to midday.
