Ms JO HAYLEN (Summer Hill)— Sunday October 20th marked the 43rd Annual Walkthon for the Greek Welfare Centre, hosted by St Nicholas Greek Orthodox Parish in Marrickville. The Greek Welfare Centre has provided support to the Greek community since 1975 and have assisted thousands of Greek Australian migrants and families. The Centre provides services and programs including multicultural social and community services, aged care and family and children services, as well as invaluable advice to residents needing help navigating Australia’s complex welfare, social and support systems. Since 1976, the Walkathon has encouraged everyone in the community to get out and get active for their community, no matter their age or ability. It’s a fantastic opportunity to get healthy and to connect with others in the local community.
Congratulations to all the organisations who collectively helped raised over $27,000 dollars for the Greek Welfare Centre’s community services, everyone who turned out and walked. Your donations will help provide cultural and linguistically diverse services, community welfare programs and health services supporting many CALD communities across Sydney. And thank you, as always, to the St Nicholas Greek Orthodox Parish Community for co-ordinating and hosting this important community event.
