Funds raised during 2017 at the Wingham Community Market has been used for good works in the Wingham area.

More than $600 has so far been raised this year at the community markets held every second Saturday of the month at Wingham Skate Park. 

Last month children from Wingham Brush Public School and Mt George Public School were given the opportunity to see the Ditto, Keep Safe Adventure Show developed by Bravehearts Inc.

The show included an interactive educational presentation and sing-a-long with Ditto.

The aim of the teachings were to assist children to develop skills to recognise safe and unsafe feelings, when not to keep secrets and telling people they trust if they have any of these “yukky feelings.”

The Wingham Community Market would like to thank all of their loyal customers and stallholders for the continued support enabling the costs for the show, normally borne by parents, to be shared between the Wingham Market and Bravehearts Mid-North Coast.
