Cottage by the Sea 2024 Winter Newsletter


The cooler weather has arrived at Cottage by the Sea. Visiting children are warming up with hand-knitted beanies and colourful scarves for the adventures each day brings. At the time of writing, 1,592 children have experienced a Cottage program (not including Respite) this financial year alone. Thank you for contributing to this impact and for your support.

Each day, Cottage by the Sea is filled with a cascade of helping hands – from donors, volunteers, Ambassadors and our Patron, Board members, staff and other supporters – that help us achieve our mission. A donor recently gave Cottage his coin collection and a gift in his Will. One of our Branches made a generous contribution to our fishing activity. The 19th year of the Bulls & Bears Golf Day raised much-needed funds to help more children come through our doors. These are just some of the ways, many quietly but surely, that the community breathes life into our children’s charity.

Thank you to everyone who has donated time, funds or services to support children at Cottage by the Sea. Your help truly makes a difference, and we hope the stories in our Winter Newsletter below help reflect your meaningful contributions.
