Commercial Hotel Morpeth puts a new spin on community support


Simone Truze (Truzie), Nathan Truze, Cerebral Palsy Alliance representative Kate Booth, hoteliers Joy and Ray Webb.

Last year Ray and Joy Webb, along with the Commercial Hotel at Morpeth's loyal patrons, raised thousands of dollars for local organisation Volunteers of Palliative Care.


This year, using the hotel's same unique chocolate wheel style raffle, the venue and its patrons have raised more than $7,000 for the Cerebral Palsy Alliance.


"We decided this year to raise money through our weekly raffle in support of people living with Cerebral Palsy," Joy said.


"This was our non-profit organisation of choice because our official chocolate wheel spinner Nathan Truze is living with the condition and he means the world to us."

The Cerebral Palsy Alliance provides support and care to help babies, children, teenagers and adults living with neurological and physical disabilities to lead the most comfortable, independent and inclusive lives possible.


"Some of the clients we have are not able to use their hands to access computer programs that help them to communicate, so one of the initiatives we have is called Eye-Gaze Communication," Cerebral Palsy Alliance representative Kate Booth said.


"It uses a computer sensor to follow eye movements and operate the computer, and essentially to communicate.


"Funding like this is invaluable to the organisation in the provision of this kind of equipment and we want to thank the hotel for its support."
