To mark International Women’s Day on March 8th Kara House attended the Women In Rotary Breakfast with a group of our favourite supporters and advocates. The primary objective of the event is to celebrate women’s achievements on the road to gender equality. A discussion panel of representatives of the media, Alfred Hospital, Police Force and a local school discussed the event topic “Today’s girls – tomorrow’s leaders”.
Those in attendance were Lucy and Alex from Donvale Chiropractic Centre, who year after year gift us toys and clothing at Christmas, and Joy Gibson and Kelly Quirk from Box Hill Institute who have assisted with fundraising in the past year. Dr Angela Spinney and Christine Hayes also attended from Swinburne University who advocate and provide corporate volunteering for Kara House.
They joined our Chairman Margaret Morrissey, members of the Management Committee and Kara House team for breakfast. It was a wonderful chance to catch up on what’s happening at Kara House and thank them for their ongoing support.
