COTA NT launches fundraising drive for its aged care services

19 Jul 2023

COTA NT has launched a major raffle to raise funds to support its aged care access services in Darwin and Alice Springs, which help seniors and their families access aged care support and services.

 Raffle tickets will be sold face-to-face at COTA NT’s offices and community events and online from today and throughout August. The raffle has been generously supported by artist Sarrita King and House of Fulton Jewellery with prizes valued at almost $3000.

First prize is an original artwork by Sarrita, which is on display in COTA NT’s head office at Spillett House, 65 Smith Street in Darwin (and selected events) until it reaches its new home. The second prize donated by House of Fulton Jewellery is a $600 gift voucher to spend in its store. Raffle tickets cost $5 for one entry into the draw, or $20 for five entries. The raffle will be drawn at the end of Seniors Month (Thursday 31 August).

More details about the raffle and the opportunity to buy a winning ticket are both published to the COTA NT website,

“We are grateful to have received two major prizes for our fundraising raffle and value all monetary donations towards our work, big and small,” said Sue Shearer CEO of COTA NT. “We know that for many senior Territorians times may be tough financially, especially as the cost of living continues to increase. Therefore, we are extremely appreciative of support given to us by those Territorians able to become financial Members, to volunteer for us or to attend our events and activities.”
