LOCALS will have the chance to support Ky’s chaplains at Kyabram P-12 College’s annual fundraising dinner this Friday.
Grab a few friends and come enjoy a sit-down dinner, drinks and a guest speaker – all while raising money to continue the exceptional work of chaplains in our community.
Australian Conservatives member Dr Rachel Carling-Jenkins – who has worked for 20 years in welfare and is an international speaker on disabilities and dementia – will be sharing at the event.
Dr Carling-Jenkins has a PhD in Social Science studying social movements supporting people with disabilities, Indigenous Australians and women in Australia.
Kyabram P-12 chaplain Liz Spicer said she hoped the evening would give the Kyabram Chaplaincy Committee a chance to thank its generous donors while also raising further funds for the cause.
“Chaplains are 50 per cent funded by donations and 50 per cent by the school,” she said.
“And they’re not just for the school. If anything happens in the community – whether it’s a drought, a flood, deaths, or the need for food and clothing – chaplains are here to help.
“By giving to chaplains, you will ultimately be giving back to the community.”
The fundraising dinner will be held at the Kyabram Bocce Club on Friday, August 11 from 6.30pm.
There is no charge to attend the dinner.
