  • Canada Bay reaches Fiji

    thumb

    Canada Bay Club is proud of its long-term sponsorship of junior sporting groups, supporting community initiatives and contributing funds to local events. We always strive to make a difference and recently we sponsored an initiative that reached outside the inner west area. We extended a helping hand to Inner West local and Canada Bay Club member, Tegan Anthes. Tegan had been looking at various volunteering opportunities when a friend told Tegan about her experience with Habitat for Humanity, building a home in Nepal. So in 2016, Tegan joined the Habitat for Humanity team for a building project in Fiji.
