Supporting our frontline workers

Local volunteers from the Rapid Relief Team (RRT) in Castlemaine have donated 100 Comfort Snack Packs to healthcare workers at the Castlemaine Health/CHIRP Community Health COVID-19 testing clinic.
The Comfort Snack Packs contain a number of tasty goodies, including nutritional muesli bars, fruit cups, cheese and crackers, and some sweets.
RRT local team leader for Castlemaine Eben Pudney said the donation was a small token of appreciation to the local healthcare workers.
“The pandemic has created many challenges for Australians, particularly for our healthcare workers,” Mr Pudney said.
“We’d like to thank the workers at the Castlemaine COVID-19 testing clinic who have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to keep the community safe – putting the needs of others above their own,” he said. See the Mail for more…
