Branch Report – May 2015

Hello Everyone

I hope you have all had a great Easter and enjoyed the long weekend.

Below are some details on the upcoming events the NSW branch have planned. It would be great to see as many people as possible at these events, even those from interstate.


Woolworths Fundraising BBQ – Sunday 12 April 2015: The SSPA NSW Branch held a BBQ Fundraiser on Sunday, 12 April at Woolworths, Kings Langley Shopping Centre. We were there from 9am until 4pm, and had a reasonable turnout, but were able to raise a good amount of money to go towards this year’s convention. Thanks to all who helped out on the day and to Troy for organising it.

Branch Meeting and Sports Afternoon – Saturday 2 May 2015: Our second branch meeting for the year was held at the home of the Cowlishaw family in Winston Hills (North Western Sydney). This was followed by lunch with a sports afternoon at Blacktown Leisure Centre, Stanhope (corner of Stanhope Parkway and Sentry Drive, Stanhope Gardens).


We’ve got a few events planned for the coming months, however we are still finalising details for a few of them. We will keep the website ( updated with any changes and if you would like any further information, please email me on [email protected]

ConnecTeD Ball: Saturday 23 May 2015: The ConnecTeD Foundation Fundraising Ball for 2015 has been cancelled. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances, the board of ConnecTeD Foundation has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s ConnecTeD Ball. They will be holding the Ball next year. When we have more details of next year’s ball, we’ll include them on the website and in our email newsletter.

Annual General Meeting: Saturday 8 August 2015: As done in recent years, the 2015 AGM will be held at Westmead Children’s Hospital (Hawkesbury Road, Westmead). During the meeting we will be holding our elections for the 2015-16 year. If you would like to stand for a position or vote during the AGM, please make sure you are a SSPA member for 2015-16 before the meeting.

Trivia Night: Saturday 8 August 2015: We are currently underway with our plans for a Trivia Night at Carlingford Bowling Club on Saturday 8 August 2015. We will provide more details in the next few months on the website . If you would like to help out, please let us know and we’d also appreciate any help with donations of prizes for the night, including raffle/auction items.

Kind regards,
Emily Sloane,
NSW State Secretary.
