Get dead set on Dying to Know Day

Research shows that 87 per cent of Australians agree that at least some end-of-life planning is important however many often experience barriers to taking action.

We all have reason to thank the Mullumbimby and District Neighbourhood Centre (M&DNC) for their contribution during the flood. In the lull after a crisis it’s easy to forget those whose volunteering is ongoing throughout the year.

I am wanting to particularly commend the handful of food program volunteers who continually provide a vital service, especially during difficult times. It’s been disheartening since the flood that food supplies have decreased and volunteers are finding it challenging to prepare enough food for the demand in the community.

My understanding is the existing team feel stretched and badly need the support of additional volunteers. I would request the M&DNC to do whatever is necessary to ensure this vital service is sustainable.
