Each year wharfies from Toll Burnie, seafarers and maritime workers from across the state come together for an MUA Anzac Day Golf Tournament to raise money for a local charity whilst also having a bit of fun.
This year was no different, once the frost has melted and Anzac Day services were coming to a close, sixty or so MUA members gathered in Burnie for the annual MUA Golf Day.
This year the dollars were flowing rapidly to help those doing it tougher than most; members raised $2750 to give to City Mission’s can/ food drive.
MUA members and Golf day organisers Andrew Spinks and Bill Jongschaap joined Alisha Bull, MUA Tasmania Deputy Secretary to make a presentation to the City Mission team in Burnie. (Pictured here with Scott from City Mission)
