Community Fundraiser for Nepal - Report
On Friday night 1st May at the Waterfront Cafe at Church Point a
spontaneous event was organised by local residents to raise funds for
the Nepal Earthquake Oxfam fund.
Once again the generosity of Scotland Island and Offshore Artists was
overwhelming with over 40 items of Artworks being donated for a Silent
Auction which raised a whopping $6717.00 and in addition generous
donations of goods and services from local businesses were raffled to
raise over $2700.00.
The Waterfront Cafe hosted the event and donated
$5 from the sale of every Pizza bringing to a total raised $10,000.00.
Local musicians donated their talents to entertain the crowds.
Brian - was amazing letting everyone drop in all the bottles of wine
over 3 days.
Contributing vouchers included;
Mona Vale Massage -
Pasmina and crafts Nepali store.
Penny From Church Point Ferry Services for the cruise and a ferry ticket
The Pedicure and Manicure Store in Pittwater Place.
Too many gifts in raffle to list but it included whale watching cruise,
captain cook cruise and so many more...
People personally donated their skills; Jackie at the store gave a
homecooked meal for 6 as well as kids offering a night of babysitting
A special thank you to Nettie and Amy for their significant
contribution of time and energy to help make this all happen.

the past weeks an increasing number of Yellowknifers have reported
receiving them, even if they don’t use WhatsApp smartphone messaging.
According to a post on the WhatsApp website: “We do not send you emails
about chats, voice messages, payment, changes, photos, or videos. You
will only receive an email from WhatsApp if you initiate a conversation
with us via our dedicated email channels, such as one of our support
“Unwanted messages come in many forms, such as spam, hoax and phishing
messages. All these types of messages are broadly defined as

It seems the scam uses a phishing technique that allows hackers to
access people’s email accounts and send emails from them.

click on it.
