In Brief: Save these dates! Here’s a quick look at what’s happening in the ‘hood.
Let’s face it – we’re all time poor and sometimes it’s hard to get a handle on what’s going on in the local area. With that in mind, Mosman Collective has compiled a helpful list of events and activities taking place in the next few weeks.
There is still time to register for the Balmoral Swim, taking place this Sunday 3 April from 7am. Enter the 1km race around the island, or challenge yourself with a 2.5k or 5k around the bay. The Balmoral Swim started as a “Swim for Cancer” in 1990, with money raised to benefit targeted cancer-related charities. Since 2006, the Children’s Cancer Institute has been the beneficiary of funds.
The Balmoral Swim is a key date in our community calendar, and we encourage everyone to pop down to the beach this Sunday to support a truly great cause. You’ll find more info here and PS) Entries close on Saturday!
