Wyndham City’s Mayor was teeing off for a good cause last week.
Mayor Cr Henry Barlow welcomed local businesses and community groups to Werribee Park Golf Club for the Mayoral Charity Golf Day.
Cr Barlow said the day was a great event, as about 40 players got together to raise funds for Uniting Wyndham—formerly Uniting Care Werribee Support and Housing.
“The sun was shining as we spent the day on the golf course, and the best part is we managed to raise more than $4,000 for Uniting Wyndham,” Cr Barlow said.
“Uniting Wyndham has been an important part of our community since the 1980s. The dedicated team of staff and volunteers spend their time supporting vulnerable members of the community in housing and other support services,” he said. “They also coordinate a foster care service, youth services and more.”
Cr Barlow said Wyndham City recognised the invaluable contributions Uniting Wyndham makes to the community and was proud to be supporting it. “There are so many people living in Wyndham, and the western suburbs more broadly, who have benefited from the work Uniting Wyndham does,” Cr Barlow said. “We have no doubt they will put this money to good use.”
