Country Hope will be celebrating their 15th Birthday on the 11th May 2018 and we would love for you to join us for morning tea. Drop in between 10:00am and 12 midday at 25 Blake Street, Wagga Wagga; we would love to see you there. The generosity of our local businesses, volunteers and donors is second to none. The communities of Wagga Wagga, Albury, Griffith and our surrounding towns continues to exceed in generosity and it is to you that we extend our sincerest thanks in helping us help our families.
‘Wagga Skyworks’ will be Wagga Wagga’s premier New Year’s Eve celebration. Daniel Martelozzo, Dealer Principal and Director of Thomas Bros Group is the visionary for this event, which is inspired by Perth’s Australia Day ‘Skyshow’.
In 2017, there will be three fantastic events taking place at three magnificent venues overlooking Lake Albert. Wagga Skyworks will encompass a free community event, which will take place at APEX Park, Lake Albert, and two ticketed events at the following licensed venues; Wagga Wagga Boat Club and Wagga Wagga Country Club. Organisers anticipate crowds of 10,000+ to take part in the inaugural event.
Thomas Bros Group would like to establish Wagga Skyworks as an annual community and tourism event that generates positive social and economic outcomes for the city. To do this, the committee will need to secure support from the people of Wagga Wagga, the business community and Event Partner Wagga Wagga City Council.
All proceeds from the event will be donated to local children’s charities including but not limited to Country Hope and Wagga Community Kitchen.
2017 WAGGA SKYWORKS WHEN: Sunday 31 December 2017 WHERE: Lake Albert, NSW

Our 2017 "Time Out For Life" camp has been booked from Sunday 24th September 2017 to Friday 29th September 2017. Make sure you save the date. The camp was such a success in 2016 it will be held again at the Borambola Sport & Recreation Centre, Via Wagga - approximately twenty minutes from Wagga central.

The "Time Out for Life" camp training weekend will be held at the Rex Airlines AAPA Campus at the Wagga Wagga Airport on Saturday 1st July and Sunday 2nd July 2017. This training weekend is for our registered carers to learn, enjoy the company of fellow carers and to feel well equipped and informed about the important role they are participating in.
This year Wagga locals will be staying at home on the Saturday night and we are hoping you may be able to provide a bed for another volunteer carer. When you complete your registration form you can indicate then if you are happy to billet someone. The training weekend is a wonderful opportunity for our volunteers to strengthen existing friendships and to develop new ones. It's a great weekend and prepares our carers and support staff well for the five busy nights (not to mention the days) of camp.
