This coming Sunday, 19th June, United Cinema in Narellan are donating funds to flood affected locals in the Camden and Wollondilly areas by screening the film Red Dog.


Wednesday 29th June, Wests Tigers will walk from Concord Oval to Picton - a distance of about 80kms - to fundraise for local residents and businesses affected by flood damage.
Saturday 23rd July 2016, Picton Sports Ground will be transformed into a 60,000+ -square meter playground for all ages, filled with music and entertainment, carnival rides and activities, a wide variety of market stalls, food vendors, arts, crafts and chill out areas, kids play zone, young folk, car show, auctions, silent auctions and other surprises. 100% of all donations raised on the day will go directly to Wollondilly residents and businesses.
