It’s a hole-in-one for local charities this year

This year the Mayor’s Golf Day will raise support for those in need doing it tough due to COVID–19.

“It is estimated that the income for charities has dropped by around one third across Australia. At the same time the demand for support has surged for mental health and welfare charities as many people continue to struggle as a result of the pandemic,” City of Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas said.

“I am pleased to announce that this year the Mayor’s Golf Day event will raise funds to support two City-wide programs that have provided vital care for residents suffering hardship as a result of COVID–19.”

“Anglicare’s Pantry program through St Bede’s Anglican Church Drummoyne and St Vincent de Paul five local church conferences have provided support, food programs, and financial assistance to our residents in need.”

“We’re really honoured to have the support of the Mayor’s annual golf day. We love to connect with our neighbours in the community and create an inclusive environment where people feel truly welcome. Hosting Anglicare’s Mobile Community Pantry each fortnight is a big part of that," St Bede's Senior Minister Matt Stedman said.

“And, of course, it allows us to provide very practical support for those who need it. I’ve always said the best thing about Drummoyne is the people who live here. But not everyone finds life easy, so we are here to take a little pressure off wherever we can.”

This year’s event at Massey Park Golf Course on Friday, 13 November 2020.

As the health and safety of the community is paramount, a number of amendments to the event have been introduced to ensure the program complies with all COVID–19 public health orders and to ensure the participants can maintain social distancing and stay safe.

Tickets are sold out to play on the day, but there are lots of other ways to support our local charities. Click here to visit our event page for more information.
