CABRA-DIGGERS IS ABOUT
Cabra-Vale Diggers play an active role in the community and appreciate the opportunity to serve people who live locally and those who are proud members of the Club.
We support a diverse group of 81 local community organisations ranging from education, aged care, health services to ethnic groups. To date, more than a million dollars has been donated by the Club to these important support programs. In addition, we assist our members in hospitals and nursing homes and each month we host a free seniors concert for local nursing home patients.
Recently we partnered with Catholic Care to provide a free counselling service to members and their families dealing with difficulties.
For more information please call 0408 467 601 or visit www.catholiccare.org
Cabra-Diggers Cares is a new community initiative from Cabra Vale Diggers and demonstrates an even greater commitment to the community.
It is a “hands-on” project where we will be partnering with a range of community charities and organisations on specific projects. That partnership may include funding to assist a particular project, volunteering, in-kind assistance and promotion
If you have a project that you feel may make a good partner for the Cabra-Diggers Cares, tell us about it at firstname.lastname@example.org. We plan on doing six projects per year.
We are delighted to be finalist in the CLUB NSW Community Awards – Thank you to our partners helping the club support local initiatives.
HUME COMMUNITY HOUSING GROUP
The Club supports our local community through many different ways, one of them is the Club Grants Program. This short video which was produced in June 2021 showcases one of the many projects supported by the Club.
The Hume Community Housing Group with funds from the Club Grants program introduced the
Tenant’s Voice Forum and Mini Expo as part of the 2020-2021 grants program. The forums are held on a regular basis and is an opportunity for the tenants to raise issues affecting where they live.
The mini expo involves inviting different local services along to engage with them by providing assistance and support to the individual.

KIDS IN KITCHEN PROGRAM
The Club supports our local community through many different ways, one of them is the Club Grants Program. This short video which was produced in March 2021 showcases one of the many projects supported by the Club.
The NSW Khmer Community introduced the “Kids in Kitchen’’ program which was designed to educate young children on the healthy eating. This is to help children to gain a better understanding of the benefits of healthy food in order to reduce obesity and set them on the right path for a healthy future.
This year due to COVID-19 and coupled with concerns for the wellbeing of our members and community, we will not be conducting a live Remembrance Day Service. Instead, we will commemorate this occasion with a virtual service which can be viewed here and on the Cabra Vale Diggers Facebook page on Wednesday 11 November from 10.45am.
For further vision of WW1 view Australia at War 1914- 1918, a spectacular compilation of footage produced by Adrian Munn.
Cabra-Vale Diggers Club is one of 12 clubs which contribute to the local community via ClubGRANTS.
