Welfare agencies brace for a difficult Winter as appeal launches


The coronavirus pandemic is expected to make this year's Winter Appeal even more challenging.

Funds and goods raised for the appeal will be distributed to four Ballarat welfare agencies including Uniting, Anglicare, St. Vincent de Paul and The Salvation Army.

With Radio Ballarat's Lydiard Street North doors still locked to the public, donations can be made at The Salvation Army in Main Road or the City of Ballarat's food relief drop off point at Morshead Park.

The appeal was officially launched yesterday by Mayor Ben Taylor, appeal ambassador Peter Caligari and Radio Ballarat GM John Fitzgibbon.

Cash donations can me made via www.3ba.com.au or www.powerfmballarat.com.au
