Literacy Network would like to thank Dee Why RSL for another generous donation in 2015. As a voluntary organisation, solely dependent on the work of volunteers, Literacy Network relies on the support of several local councils and service organisations. The money we receive enables us to purchase new student and tutor resources, update our computer technology, and defray the cost of renting premises.
On Wed 19 August, Anne Moorcroft and Robyn Smith were privileged to attend a Community welcome function at the Dee Why RSL along with 120 other groups who had received cheques. It was good to hear the mayor of Warringah and other leaders praising the role and efforts of a large band of volunteers.
On 17 August Pittwater RSL officially handed over annual grants for local community service organisations. The Literacy Network was awarded $500.
In July, Warringah Council gave the Literacy Network an annual grant of $5000 towards our yearly operating costs.
