We’re always looking for ways to do what we can to support the community and last week we donated some Aware laundry powder sachet’s to the Old Bags Lunch at Hervey Bay run by Variety – the children’s charity of Queensland.
We think the Variety Old Bags Lunch is a fantastic idea to help raise much needed funds to support children.
The concept is simple; a group of ladies bring an old handbag to donate and spend the afternoon bidding on other people’s in a silent auction or by buying tickets to enter raffles. The money raised goes to the charity. All ladies at the lunch also receive a goodie bag to take home with them.
The event in Hervey Bay was a huge success with the 103 ladies who attended the luncheon fundraising just over $15,000.
Variety Queensland is dedicated to empowering children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs to live, laugh and learn.
In 2011 Variety Queensland was able to have a positive impact on the lives of over 55,000 children in need, providing equipment and services with a value in excess of $2.7 million.
