2016 Mum's Day Bags of Love packing day
- a snapshot:
. More than 228 volunteers! (228 people signed in but we saw some people who didn't get to do that)
. 27 of those people were school children each of which has had a Certificate of Appreciation sent to their school
. 750 hampers packed!
. 21 BIG bags of necessities for refuges to distribute!
Thank you EVERYONE - donors, drivers, setter-uppers, volunteers, cleaner-uppers, people who sent messages of support, and to Glen Eira College who allowed us to use their Sports' Hall - a fabulous space. THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!
We also heard three versions of Lesley Gore's You Don't Own Me.

. her reworded and rearranged version of 2005 which was the backdrop to our very moving memorial
. and the version made popular again in 1996 by The First Wives Club
