In February Crosbie Wealth cooked a delicious meal for the families staying at Ronald McDonald House in Newcastle as part of the Meals from a Heart program. The program has groups donate food and their time to prepare a meal for families going through a tough time, to give them a night off from cooking. A big thanks to those who volunteered their time and cooking skills
Fundraising raffle baskets
Our way of being able to help raise money for the numerous charities out there is to provide fundraising gift baskets which we lovingly put together. These two below where on their way to a John Hunter ICU fundraiser and for a fundraiser through Charlestown Bowling Club for Ronald McDonald House.
