Narooma ladies kick in for the VRA

The weather hasn't stopped the Narooma lady golfers from raising almost $3500 for the Narooma Volunteer Rescue Association at their annual charity day last week.

Around 45 people took to the golf course to contest a nine-hole team challenge to battle the wind and rain. At the presentation and auction after the event VRA training officer Mal Barry dressed up as “Priscilla” to hand out the prizes and add a bit of colour to the afternoon.

Mr Barry thanked the Narooma lady golfers for their continued support of the rescue squad, saying the funds helped the organisation assist the community with operations like the missing persons search conducted recently at Dalmeny, and the rock fall incident at Australia Rock.

The Narooma VRA meets every week for training from 6pm to 8pm at its headquarters on the Narooma Headland behind the Marine Rescue station. The squad is always looking for new members of all capabilities and anyone interested can contact Mal on 0428 525 493.

The Narooma ladies will have their annual charity day on again next year, with the funds going to the Narooma RFS brigade as it's chosen recipient.
