I recognise the Maitland Black and White Committee for Vision Australia. A significant component of Vision Australia’s funding comes from the support of committed volunteer groups run by tireless, long-serving volunteers who generously give their time to raise funds to support Australians who are blind or have low vision. One such group is the Maitland Black and White Committee which hosts three functions a year. I commend the group for its success which meant that Vision Australia received approximately $25,000 from the group’s Garden Ramble event alone.
