Our Valued Local Sponsors

Please support our Sponsors

Our sponsors make important contributions to our community, as well as well as supporting our fund-raising raffle.  Many of them are having a difficult time coping with the effects of the government restrictions on social interaction, resulting from the impact of Covid 19.

The attached table below shows how they are faring.  We encourage everyone to use their services or buy their products whenever you can, so that when the restrictions are lifted they will be able to continue to operate successfully.

Every year from February to April, we hold a raffle to raise the funds required to operate the GNCA, so we can interact with local residents to discuss issues of concern, raise the profile of the GNCA and lobby the Government.

The theme for 2020 was Eat, Drink and be Healthy in Griffith.  We received outstanding support from local businesses and there were 26 prizes to be won.  Some of the funds raised will be allocated to maintain our local parklands.

It is with great enthusiasm that we announce the winners of the 2020 GNCA raffle.

Tim Thomas from the Hierophant, with COVID19 separation and gloves, draws the winners.

GNCA wishes to encourage our members and advocates to support our colleagues, particularly during these difficult times.
