Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : July 23 2008
INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, July 24, 2008 15 NEWS Help for charity FIONA BRADY Neighbour Aid workers thank their sponsors for the bus. CHRISTMAS has arrived in July for a delighted local charity which has received a new minibus and $25,000 funding, thanks to appeals in the Inner-West Weekly. Inner West Neighbour Aid was in desper- ate need of a minibus so it could provide outings for local elderly people. It also needed urgent cash to prevent the closure of the Beyond Home project, which helps isolated frail aged or disabled people who face the daunting task of moving from their homes to residential aged-care homes. ''We had some articles in a few papers, including the Inner-West Weekly of course, and people started calling up with do- nations,'' Neighbour Aid's Paolo Polimeni said. ''One day we got a phone call from Club Five Dock and they told us they would like to donate a minibus to us. We couldn't believe our luck.'' But the good news didn't stop there. ''The very next day we received another call from the CEO of Fantastic Furniture and they wanted to buy a minibus for us, too, and in the mail we received a letter from Wests Ashfield telling us they were donating $5000 towards the purchase of the minibus. Can you believe it? ''We told them that we'd been offered a bus already so Fantastic Furniture kindly decided to donate $20,000 towards our Beyond Home project. ''Wests also kindly allowed us to use their funds to pay for the on-road costs and insurance of the minibus. ''It was wonderful for these organisations to not only be so generous in the first place, but then be so flexible with their generosity. ''We cannot thank them enough.''
