The hand of friendship was extended from Ocean Grove all the way to Melton recently via the two towns’ bridge clubs.
Melton Bridge Club recently lost all of its equipment in a fire at the community centre and that’s where Ocean Grove Bridge Club stepped in to help.
The Ocean Grove club hosted four members from Melton to a lunch and an afternoon of bridge and also handed over a cheque for $500 to assist a fellow bridge club in time of need.
“We were so grateful to them for the donation,” Melton Bridge Club secretary Rosemary Hare told the Voice.
“We only have 14 members and have only been going for a couple of years so our funds were very limited and the fire took out everything we had including the cupboard the things were stored in.
“It was quite a blow to us but we now have a new cupboard and some tables that we’ve purchased with the donation from Ocean Grove.”
