St Rita's Men's Social group have been working with St Rita's OSHC on the wooden toys project for children who are at OSHC over the school holidays.
Approx 50 wooden toys have been fabricated over the past two months by Bob Woosnam, John Bowskill, Bob Anderson, Bill McLennan and Mike Duggan and this week four sessions have been run in the Unitas Centre guiding the children using tools in assembling the toy and painting it.
The children had a choice of which toy they wanted to assemble including tugboats, tractor/trailers, front end loader, bulldozers, semi-trailers, racing cars, tool boxes, tip trucks, planes, and tanks.
Approx 40 children went through the 'assembly line' and at the end of the day took home their toy - great fun was had by all. The men involved in the project paid for all the costs incurred out of their own pockets.
