Fillies dig deep for charity

THE Cooma Fillies ladies league-tag side have swapped the football for rakes, shovels, Windex and cloths all in the name of charity.

A group of the team undertook a working bee at the home of the Hely family who had bought the team to undertake the work.

It was all part of fundraising efforts for the Community Chest which was launched in Cooma last April. It was established to help local people experiencing financial hardship due to health issues.

In November, the Community Chest hosted an auction which raised more than $10,000. The Fillies was one of the items auctioned on the night.

They were quick to get to work, rolling up their sleeves and completing the working bee before Christmas. They did a number of odd jobs around the home of Carolyn and Tim Hely. They cleaned windows, mulched tress branches, pruned and helped transport large rocks to the tip.

Afterwards they were treated to afternoon snacks and drinks, after a hard day's work.

The next fundraiser for the Community Chest will be a garage sale on March 29, more details to come.
