FOUR FIT LADIES: Marissa Callaghan, Sally Wallace, Jane Atkinson & Rowena Macrae Marissa Callaghan and Rowena Macrae from Coonamble, with locals Sally Wallace and Jane Atkinson, kicked off a fundraising awareness campaign for Arthritis NSW in November 2012. The ladies decided to raise funds for Arthritis NSW 'Cycle for Disability' by riding a push bike from Vietnam to Cambodia in November 2013, and are the only team to have signed up from rural Australia! For Jane Atkinson, the reason behind the fundraising is a personal one. Jane was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis and Ankylosing Spondylitis in February 2010. Both are diseases where your immune system mistakenly targets one's own body, and causes inflammation of the joints and spine. There is currently no cure for these auto immune diseases. Their goal was to kick off 2013 with a bang by seeking 25 donations of $25 in 25 days! Since the beginning of January they have blitzed that, raising a team total of over $4,000, out of a total $5,585 raised for this Arthritis NSW. With that as an incentive the team is encouraging our

community to help them reach their target of $12,700. All funds raised going directly towards Arthritis NSW, and amounts over $2 are tax deductible! Simply grab your credit card and head to the link: page/AtkinsonJ - alternatively anyone wishing to make a cash or cheque donation may do so at The Phoenix office in the Star Building, 6 Ryall Street 10am until 6pm Monday to Fridays. Receipts will be issued for tax and audit purposes. Arthritis NSW supports people of all ages living with arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions. Arthritis NSW is a non-government health charity that seeks to improve the quality of life of those affected by arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions. For further information, please visit the site: Further updates on funds raised will be published in The Phoenix, or visit the Four Fit Ladies Facebook page at:

2012 YEAR 12'S COMMUNITY SPIRIT The 2012 graduating Year 12 students of Canowindra High School have kindly donated a single sofa bed for the use in the palliative care suite at Canowindra Soldiers' Memorial Hospital. This will be a valuable asset for the hospital and provides comfort for the family of the palliative care patients. The staff of Canowindra Hospital are grateful for this thoughtful donation and wish the Year 12 students the best of luck for their future. The Canowindra Hospital have also benefited from a large donation from the Hospital Auxiliary which enabled the purchase of a vaccine refrigerator.

Eliza Ward and Connor Munroe had their first swims with Eliza backing up for her first relay swim. Welcome to both swimmers. Jessica Bennett and Julia Stanley improved by 3 seconds in the Spoon heats and so out of the semis. It was a Flannery winner again in the Spoon final as Laura Flannery outlasted a fast finishing Jarrod Strange in lane six. Laura swam a PB of 31 seconds to take home the spoon. As Alex won the spoon last week Laura this week, the pressure is on Amara Flannery to make it a Flannery trifecta this week!! Showing a great rivalry Laura then continued the Flannery tradition and was part of the winning relay team. Taking home the pennants were Laura, Lucas Ellis, Eliza Mitchell, Josie Clements, Finbar Smyth, Stewart Russell and Paul Sinfield.
