Children Charities Melbourne

Funds to establish and build Cottage by the Sea were raised by loyal and hard-working branches in the late 1800s. At one time there were over 50 branches operating in Victoria and across some other states. Over the years their number has dwindled but their place in our history can never be surpassed.

We still have a number of fundraising Branches in the Geelong and Bellarine Peninsula area. They work enthusiastically to raise money for Cottage camps. Most meet monthly and all welcome new members.

Activities run by branches include Open Garden Days, Luncheons with guest speakers, Raffles, Dinner dances, Auctions, Cake and jam stalls, Golf days, Fashion shows, and Movie nights.

If you are interested in any of the Branch activities contact the Cottage and we will put you in touch with the relevant person(s).
