The program supports youth who are at risk of disengaging from school.

Program co-ordinator Matt Stewart said there were 52 mentors and mentees from Warrnambool and Brauer colleges involved.

Mr Stewart said it was an awesome donation which would make a big difference, enabling them to provide students with more opportunities and activities.

“It’s amazing. All the hard work that these ladies put in, for them to look and choose our charity is absolutely fantastic.

 Bingo organiser Pauline Burleigh said the group recognised the value of the program.

“It’s very important because there’s so many kids who need help, it’s unbelievable,” Mrs Burleigh said.
