More brekkie and lunches thanks to historic car club

By Riverine Herald

ECHUCA-Moama Uniting Church will continue to provide nourishing meals and fellowship to locals thanks to a generous donation from Echuca and District Historic Car Club.

The club traditionally donates $500 from its annual swap meet to a local charity; this year choosing to give to the church’s breakfast and lunch program.

President Barry Higgins said the club had donated $3000 to the community in its six years of swap meets.

‘‘People probably don’t realise the swap meet does this,’’ he said.

‘‘We’re very community minded and we love to help people, especially programs like these.’’

Uniting Church treasurer John Ferris said the breakfast and lunch program cost about $5000 a year to run.

‘‘So when we get $500 from people now and then, it’s really helpful,’’ he said.

‘‘The program isn’t just about food — it’s about socialisation, about fellowship for people in the community.’’
