Robert Graham is an incredible man and fundraising powerhouse!

July 8, 2018


Rob has raised considerable funds for St John the Baptist Parish in Woy Woy, and Mary Mac’s Place over the years.

Mary Mac’s, managed and operated by CatholicCare, is open to anyone who is homeless, transient or needing a helping hand on the Central Coast. Located at the Ethel Cox Centre in Woy Woy – Mary Mac’s provides a two course lunch daily and a place to shower and to wash clothes. They offer friendly, non-judgemental support and companionship and outreach services like Legal Aid, Homeless Connector, emergency relief and counselling. More than 70 volunteers prepare over 2000 meals each month to those in need!

Rob’s team of volunteers from St John the Baptist run bingo every week in the local Community Centre and some of the funds raised on Saturday’s are donated to Mary Mac’s. Bingo is also run every school holidays at Ocean Beach Holiday Park in Umina as entertainment for park visitors and all funds raised are donated to Mary Mac’s. Over $17,000 was raised for Mary Mac’s during the last 12 months!

Mary Mac’s is not funded. We rely on donations or grants to provide this service to our community and we are incredibly thankful to Rob and his team.
