During Spring this year, we asked the Canberra Community to start collecting “Coins for Karinya”. The person or group who collect the highest value in coins win a beautiful hamper kindly donated from Sharwood Hampers. Well, the coin collections have found their way to us! Altogether, the appeal raised almost $2,000!

Our sincere thanks to all who participated including:


And the winner for the highest value in coins is… *drumroll* the Canberra Southern Cross Club! Congratulations and thanks to all the Club Venue Managers and all Club Members for supporting Coins for Karinya during Spring.The Canberra Southern Cross Club kindly insisted we pass the winner’s hamper, from our good friends at Sharwood Hampers, to someone else – which we have done – and Deidre (a personal Coins of Karinya supporter) was very happy indeed!
