The Cobar District Mother’s Association (CDMA) has welcomed a donation of $1,500 from the CSA Mine that will help to cover the group’s running costs.
CDMA president Kristin Camery said the sponsorship will ‘keep them going’ and go towards covering the costs of hall hire, insurance and the basic running costs of the group.
Mrs Camery said CDMA is able to give something back to CSA by helping new families integrate into town.
“We meet twice a week, it’s a place to have a chat, meet new people and it’s a safe place for children to play,” she said.
The CDMA is primarily for children 0-6 years and also welcomes older children (siblings) to join the group during school holidays. Children are offered a range of indoor and shaded outdoor play and craft activities, as well as singing and music.
CDMA provides a place for parents and carers to have quality time with their children, also to build friendships with other families, discover local services, find support and lend a helping hand to families in the community.
Mr Obray said it was great to be a sponsor and have a connection with the group.
“It helps the families of new employees find their feet in the local community,” Mr Obray said.
