New Year, New VIEW!

Opportunity to support children in need with other local Hills District women

Galston VIEW Club is on the lookout for women whose New Year resolution is to improve their social life and give back to The Hills District community.

VIEW stands for the Voice, Interests and Education of Women. It is one of Australia’s leading women’s volunteer organisations and supports the education of disadvantaged children through its charitable fundraising. The Galston VIEW Club is part of a network of over 300 clubs throughout Australia.

“Our role in the community is underpinned by our support of The Smith Family – a national charity that helps children in need with their education. Through our work with the charity we are helping make life-changing differences to local children and their families.”

As the new school year begins, The Smith Family is appealing for people to sponsor children who are in need of help with the cost of school essentials and outof– school learning support.

Through referrals from partner schools, the charity currently has 4,000 children in financially stressed households who are urgently in need of a sponsor. Children on the sponsorship program are also connected with a Smith Family coordinator who takes the time to understand the child’s specific needs, ensuring they receive appropriate assistance.

Those who join the Galston VIEW Club, which hosts monthly meetings place at The Galston Club, 21-25 Arcadia Road Galston for members on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 11am, will play a pivotal role in supporting The Smith Family’s work by fundraising to sponsor more children.

In addition to their ongoing support of The Smith Family, VIEW hosts social events, including fashion parades, luncheon outings, etc.

Anyone interested in becoming a member can call Vivien on 9894 1189 or visit www.view.org.au for further information.
