Volunteer Membership

The same benefits apply to this membership as the Ordinary membership. However, a reduced rate is given as it is expected that the following tasks be completed voluntarily: Two sessions of Rostered shift duty at the Toy Library, per school term for a yea, as well as one of the following:

  • Assist at one session during January stocktake, or
  • Assist with the Baby Gear Sale in February,
  • Clean ten toys per school term

Present Fee is $35.00

Special Membership

This is determined by the Management Committee. There are times when local grandparents have their grandchildren visiting from overseas or interstate. On other occasions there might be a family that is in financial difficulty, their membership will also be at the discretion of the Management Committee as it is felt that no child in the area should be disadvantaged because of the family’s financial situation. Often in this later situation the family will give of their time and expertise to compensate their inability to pay.
