Central Coast teenagers do their bit for families


Eighteen year old Naomi Hayes from Woy Woy on the Central Coast has been working at Woy Woy McDonald’s for the past 4.5 years as an Area Leader and is know as the “Coffee Queen”.  Naomi is studying Business and started her own company -  Cakes by Naomi - when she was just 14 years of age.

Naomi is self-taught and does amazing work. She wanted to raise some money for the Family Room so she did what she does best, baked two cakes, placed them on Facebook, and auctioned them off to the highest bidders.

Naomi sold the cakes for a total of $401.00 and donated the full amount to the Family Room. Naomi and her family came to visit the Family Room and presented the Cheque.

Charlotte McMurtrie is a Gorokan High School Year 11 student who was awarded a scholarship to participate in a world class coaching program with 25 emerging young leaders from Central Coast High Schools.

Max Potential, in partnership with Clubs NSW, ran this program over 22 weeks. Each student had to pick a community service project. Charlotte chose the Gosford Family Room and focused on lending a helping hand to ill children and their families.

She organised donation drives throughout Wyong, creating gift packs to entertain and brighten the lives of our children who visit the Family Room in Gosford. Charlotte also organised a fundraiser at her school and has raised over $380.00 for the Family Room. She hopes that the student who gets to participate in the 2019 course will also help our Family Room.
