The Sunshine Club was started by a group of women in Newcastle who got together to knit socks, gloves and beanies for enlisted men in World War 11.

Quite a few groups started up and were spread around Newcastle and the Hunter.

Dungog joined the group but eventually broke away in the 1960s.

“The money that was being raised was going to Newcastle and members wanted it to stay in Dungog,” said president Kay Edwards.

“We only have a small membership and raise the money with our annual luncheon, two street stalls and games morning which are held about four times a year.”

Dungog is the only Sunshine Club left now.

Dungog-Clarence Town CWA, Dungog SES, Dungog Girl Guides, Dungog area Rural Fire Service, St Vincent de Paul, Camp Quality and Vision Australia each received $200 each.
