The Great Lakes and Manning volunteer branch has been actively working in the community since March 3, 1980. The branch is situated on the Mid North Coast of NSW and covers an area from Tea Gardens in the South to Coffs Harbour in the north. In 2000 our op-shop was opened and has been doing very well ever since. The op shop was updated and refurbished in late 2017 thanks to a community grant and generous support from local businesses.
