Thanks to the generosity of the ladies of Box Hill Golf Club, the lives of women and children seeking safety and refuge at Kara House has been made a little more comfortable. In February this year, the Ladies Charity Committee chose Kara House as one of their beneficiaries. Since that time, we have been fortunate to receive much needed donations of linen, towels and bedding. We now have enough linen, towels and sheets to support our clients throughout 2015 and beyond.
On 13 April, the ladies of Box Hill Golf Club held their annual fundraising day, resulting in funds raised of $5400 for Kara House. We are very grateful for this support, which will go towards supporting women and children so disadvantaged by family violence.
A big thank you to the ladies’ President, Myra Fisher, the Ladies Charity Committee, Box Hill Golf Club and the 112 ladies from 22 golf clubs who supported this fundraising initiative. This cash injection will allow us to undertake much needed maintenance for the house and to enhance our children play room.
