At our recent AGM we recognised volunteers who have been helping at MSS for more than five, and more than 10 years. Our volunteers play a key role in helping us make a difference in the community, and we thank them for their ongoing commitment. They are a remarkable and very appreciated group.

MSS was recently recognised in the Community Visitor’s Scheme: 30 years of Friendship book. The book celebrates the stories of the amazing volunteers who have provided friendship and companionship to the elderly through this valuable program.
Here’s the wonderful story of volunteer Lynne and her friendship with Ming, who she visited for more than five years. You can also read Lynne’s response to discovering her story had been featured in the book.
MSS is a proud sponsor of Taree Little Athletics and our sponsorship allowed the club to purchase new, much-needed uniforms. The new design was created by local Biripi artist Amy Saunders and represents the towns, river, mountains and beaches of the Manning region.
Our marketing coordinator, Linda Hoadley, attended the launch of the new uniforms on Friday at Taree Rec grounds. The club has doubled in size since last year, and MSS’s sponsorship has been valuable during this time of growth.
MSS staff members threw their support behind the cause, with many volunteering to have their hair shaved, trimmed or coloured today at our Taree social hub.
Ryan’s fundraising efforts were more than double his original target of $500.
The event was a great opportunity for us to be reminded of the importance of being open and honest about mental health struggles.
