The Tatura Community House will host a Coffee Morning from 10.30am this morning to hear the latest news on the Timor Leste project.
Spokesperson Glenys Stockdale said everyone was warmly invited to attend the talk.
‘‘We have been supporting the Neonate Intensive Care Unit in Dili for four years; mainly through sewing nighties and wraps for the premature babies,’’ Ms Stockdale said.
‘‘Last year we held a successful coffee morning to raise funds to help with the cost of freight for seven crib mattress, three carry cots, privacy screen curtains, and other items to Dili.
‘‘Come and hear how we’ve made new contacts and identified more needs of the children of Timor Leste.’’
Entry is $5, which includes coffee, cake, speakers and a trading table including handmade items in Timor Leste.
‘‘Please come and support us in our efforts to help the children of our very needy close neighbour,’’ Ms Stockdale said.
The Coffee Morning runs from 10.30am at 20 Casey St, Tatura.
