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.
CLUB CURBS LONELINESS ONE CALL AT A TIME
In at time of the coronavirus crisis when being alone is our strongest defence, the question remains do we need to be lonely?
Well according to the team at the Cabra-Vale Diggers Group the answer is quite simply NO. Clubs play such a significant role in maintaining the social well-being for many of its members in the community. From the ladies that line up early morning to reserve their favourite bingo table to the elderly patron who’s highlight of his day is to be served his favourite cup of warm coffee from the staff members who knows him by name. These things, albeit trivial, are crucial to the existence of so many.
So, while the doors are closed for regular business, the team at Cabra-Vale Diggers Group have decided to maintain its role in the community by calling each member, one at a time, to simply ask the question, “how are you?”. This simple question has become a key to helping so many. From those who just love to chat, to those who have advised of their hardships and worries as they self-isolate from the community. “As the conversations evolve, we are discovering more personally the individual needs of our members and are acting accordingly, “said Boris Belevski, group CEO.
