The CWA (Country Women’s Association) in Mullumbimby have been caring for the community from their rooms on the corner of Tincogan and Gordon streets for 76 years. After their first four years with community support and fundraising they were able to build the Mullum CWA headquarters in 1949.

The CWA have hosted a range of interest groups including art and choir practice as well as hosting fundraising morning teas for the Rescue Helicopter and Ovarian Cancer support. The rooms are hired to community groups and it is an intimate venue for celebrations.

After working so hard, the building needs a bit of a health spa treatment with some freshening up, including a good splash of paint, and they are hoping that the community can lend them a hand.

To kick the fundraising off, the Mullumbimby Chamber of Commerce have chipped in $1,000 and it is hoped that businesses and individuals will add to the pot. To donate to the CWA’s fundraiser can deposit in their account: BSB 062578 Acc #00900119.

New members are welcome to attend the monthly meetings on the second Wednesday of each month, and junior membership is open for under 18s. For information contact Mullum CWA President Diane Giddins on 0490 954 549 or email Secretary Jenny Barlow at: [email protected]
