On August 9th we will be partaking in CafeSmart to support StreetSmart who act to ignite positive action against the homeless. The organisation fundraises to support grassroots projects that tackle homelessness. These smaller organisations provide vital frontline services but struggle with a lack of resources, the little guys are an important part of our social safety net, and in collaboration with individuals, business and corporate partners our mission is to lend a helping hand.

CafeSmart unites the community over our favourite brew to help fund local homeless services. On August 9th hundreds of coffee roasters and cafes around Australia will partner and donate $1 from every coffee sold, and ask their customers to chip in a donation to help tackle homelessness.

So make sure you pop into Moss Vale Leisure Centre on this day to make your contribution! To learn more about how you can get involved see their website here.

With the winter season upon us, it becomes a little more difficult to get out of the house. However, swimming is a sport you can do all year round, and everyone can participate, especially when we have a heated indoor pool!

Here are our top 4 reasons why you and the family should hit up Moss Vale Aquatic Centre:
  1. Swimming is one of the few sports you can do throughout your lifetime
  2. It does not require lots of special equipment and gear, all you really need is a swimsuit
  3. It creates a reason to get together— a good way to socialise with your family
  4. Did you know that swimming can boost your immune system? When cells in the body regularly get blood and oxygen, they function better

So what are you waiting for, grab your togs and let’s go!
