Treat yourself and help our Silverlea

A cake stall and sausage sizzle is being held today to raise money for the beleaguered Silverlea Early Childhood Services.
Stacey Jackson-Moroney is very passionate about Silverlea and wanted to help out anyway she could.
The Broken Hill institution for children with an intellectual disability is in danger of closing after its annual funding was withdrawn by the NSW Government.
This week an application for a grant was rejected by the federal government.
Stacey together with her husband Rob and others will be hosting the stall out front of his Top End Meats store at 8am, giving everyone the opportunity to pick up something for morning tea or lunch.
There will be cakes, homemade pasties and sausages in bread.
Stacey said it might even make a good trial run for Easter.
Silverlea CEO/Educator Tenille Hawes said she would like to give lots of thanks to all in Broken Hill for their support.
“A big thank you to Stace and Rob as well as other community members and businesses who have donated their funds, their time and baked goods for our many fundraisers over the last month,” Tenille said.
“This has enabled Silverlea to continue to deliver early intervention support to children from birth to eight years who may be experiencing developmental delays.
“It has kept us going while we lobby for funding.
“Over the 58 years we have been operating, we have relied on community donations and to say that we are grateful does not begin to explain the impact the support has on the board members, staff and families that require early intervention.
“The needs and support of the local Broken Hill community is what drives our dedication to secure long-term funding and continue to operate a high quality early childhood organisation.”
