Supporting our locals

As a community-based club, Laurieton United Services Club provides assistance in the form of cash donations, community grants, and provision of a free venue for meetings to all local service organisations such as Rotary, Lions and Probus as well as locally-based charitable organisations such as Red Cross, Riding for the Disabled, Meals on Wheels and Torchbearers for Legacy. The club also supports 22 affiliated sub-clubs including Lawn Bowls, Fishing Club, Travel Club, Bridge Club and Women’s and Men’s Golf Clubs.

Laurieton United Services Club are very proud supporters of our local sporting teams and community groups and contribute where we can including over $90,000 in funding and donations to support over 80 community groups.

Commencing in August 2016, the Club also supports Camden Haven Community @ 3, a movement that was formed out of a need to address the concerns of homelessness and loneliness in the area providing an opportunity for them to connect and re-connect with our community.

Every year the Club shows their appreciation and support for the local community by hosting the annual Australia Day and New Year’s Eve celebrations as well as hosting a Kids Christmas Party for our member’s children and grandchildren with games, rides, face painting, lolly bags and a special visit from Santa Clause to thank our members and provide a little something special for their families.

Laurieton United Services Club has been a huge part of Slice of Haven from the onset. Hosted on the club’s doorstep and with Robert Dwyer, Secretary Manager, one of the event visionaries at the helm; Slice of Haven has become an important addition to the event calendar of the NSW Mid North Coast and an event we are excited and proud to be part of each year with over 70 stallholders and 16,500 people tasting their “slice” of Haven.
Community Grants

Last year, NSW registered clubs contributed in excess of $100 million through ClubGRANTS.

Over the last year, Laurieton United Services Club has proudly contributed over $70,000 in Mid North Coast community grants to local charities, sporting groups and organisations.

Our Club is proud to be the focus of social, sporting and community activities in the Camden Haven and are equally proud to acknowledge that success for our Club means success for the entire community.

Our profits are reinvested back into our community through these grants as well as donations, or new facilities and events for our members and the community.

In 2019/20 we supported over 84 sporting and community groups; this couldn’t have been done without the tremendous support from our members, and we are hopeful you are equally as proud to know that the profits from every meal you purchase, games played or beverage you enjoy has contributed to this support.
