Girl Friday Inspirational Luncheon & Fashion Show 19th October 2012

The Girl Friday luncheon held on Friday 19th October was well supported by local businesses and was a sold out event. The money raised on the day of the luncheon through ticket sales, a raffle and the sales of Girl Friday inaugural gold pins was overwhelming.  We were immediately able to offer 60 kitchen starter packs for all women setting up their new home after leaving the refuge.  Girl Friday also provided a large drop of food for the pantry along with a computer for the women in the refuge to help them find housing and set up much needed appointments.  We have started replacing some beds and mattresses along with linen and pillows. In addition we are working with the refuge staff to provide Christmas presents for the lady’s and their children. We are also looking to do more in the near future as is our promise to continue to support these women’s refuges.
