1. Shed fundraising — For the last two years the Shed has assisted the Dederang/Mt Beauty Football & Netball Club by collecting their Gate Entry money, for home games. In return they allow us to sell raffle tickets at the gate for a donated trailer load of red-gum wood or a Bunnings sales voucher. Any ticket sales is Shed profit. The committee is seeking a Footy Gate Raffle Co-ordinator and Volunteers for the 9 home games – 5 at Dederang and 4 at Mt Beauty. Volunteers can help for whatever number of games or time commitment they wish. Hours are 7am to 3pm.

Hi my name is Josh and I am raising funds for 15 rescued dogs to become Assistance Dogs to support our serving and ex-serving Australian Defence Force members who are dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD)
I am a returned servicemen who served in Afghanistan. I deployed three times over a period of four years and needless to say, this was extremely tough on myself and my young family. After returning from deployment I realised that I was not coping, and after my wife expressed her concerns, I decided to get help. In August 2013 I was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as well as major depression. This sent our world into a spin.
