Local women are joining forces to help disadvantaged children while establishing lasting friendships through the volunteer organisation VIEW Club Bundaberg.
VIEW is a leading national organisation that stands for the Voice, Interests and Education of Women.
The club provides the opportunity for women of all walks of life to meet regularly, establish lasting friendships and help disadvantaged children through supporting the work of charity, The Smith Family.
VIEW Club Bundaberg formed late last year and will be inaugurated at the end of this month.
Publicity officer Sheryll Monsour said the group was driven by a mission to create social change in local communities.
“VIEW empowers women to have their voices heard on issues of importance for the future wellbeing of Australian society,” Sheryll said.
“VIEW Club of Australia head office was looking to form another club and Bundaberg was the next step.”
Currently, VIEW Club Bundaberg has 30 financial members and Sheryll said the organisation would be inaugurated on 22 June, which would enable it to move forward with local support.
Sheryll said VIEW was open to all women interested in supporting The Smith Family and its Learning for Life program, which helped disadvantaged children through education.
“VIEW Club Bundaberg meet on the fourth Wednesday each month at the Young Australian Hotel, North Bundaberg, 11 am for a 11.30 am start lunch meeting,” she said.
“A trading table is available for members to contribute to and at each meeting an interesting guest speaker is welcomed.”
There is close to 300 VIEW Clubs around Australia.
VIEW offers a friendship network, providing fun and a sense of purpose for members through supporting the education of disadvantaged Australia children.
