Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : April 1st 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, April 2, 2009 21 NEWS Call for people-power vote ZILKA GROGAN CANADA Bay's tribute to its Italian heritage has earned it a nomination for the 2009 Local Government Cultural Awards. The statue La Famiglia (pictured), located at Stevenson's Reserve in Five Dock, has been nominated in the Programs, Projects and Partnerships category of the awards. The Ashfield Youth Theatre and the Underline Project in Ashfield, as well as the Mental As! project in Strathfield, have also been nominated in the awards. President of the Local Government and Shires Associations of NSW, Cr Genia McCaffery, said the awards recognised the work of councils in promoting cultural projects. ''Councils work really hard to provide residents with programs and projects that acknowledge and support community culture,'' Cr McCaffery said. The statue, which is co- sponsored by the Inner-West Weekly, symbolises Canada Bay's strong Italian influence. Residents have the opportunity to show their support by voting for the People's Choice Award at http://culturalawards- 2009.lgsa.org.au. Voting closes at midnight on April 27. Hop in and give blood during Easter WE can't all be Superman or Wonder Woman, but we too can save lives by donating blood. This Easter the Australian Red Cross Blood Service is asking people to donate blood on public holidays, which are when donations fall as people go away. A donor mobile van will be at the corner of Sydney Olympic Park Boul- evard and Dawn Fraser Ave on Easter Saturday from 10am to 4pm and on Easter Monday from 9.30am to 3.30pm. Many Blood Donor Centres will also be open during the Easter weekend to ensure the demand for blood is met. Australian Red Cross Blood Service operations unit manager Garry Wolfe said more than 21,000 life-saving blood donations are needed each week. To make an appointment to give blood, register your interest online at www.donateblood.com.au or phone 13 14 95, where your questions will be answered. Charitable haircuts Solomon Donald, Anna Hoyles and Liam James after their close shave, and inset, before. MEMBERS of Burwood Rotaract Club, a youth ser- vice organisation made up of 20 young people from the Inner West, went under the razor for a good cause. The World's Greatest Shave raises money for the Leukaemia Foundation to provide practical support to people suffering from leu- kaemia, lymphoma and my- eloma. On March 14, surrounded by a group of supporters, Solomon Donald, Liam James and Anna Hoyles lost their locks. Another member of the group, Mackenzie Benstead, arrived at the event with pink hair, which she had permanently dyed for the World's Greatest Shave. Burwood Rotaract is a group of 18- to 30-year-olds who are committed to help- ing the community by fundraising for charities. Club president Kate Cornford said the four mem- bers who participated in the World's Greatest Shave were ''illustrative of the involve- ment of all club members''. ''Whether it's organising events, sourcing funding or getting our heads shaved, all our members get their hands dirty and do as much as they can for the youth charities we choose to raise funds for,'' she said. All together Rotaract raised more than $7000 for the Leukaemia Foundation and the amount continues to rise. ''It's just a small contri- bution to the millions that have been raised across the country,'' Liam James said. ''We all think our hair is a small thing to lose in com- parison to losing a life.''
