Nikoli and Jane safety checked 6 prams in 2 hours yesterday! It was their first time tinkering and they both loved it and took to it likes ducks to water. They did get a head start however as each pram had been beautifully washed by the team at Interchange Outer East beforehand. These prams will all be picked up by social workers on Monday to go to their new homes. It really does take a village - thank you to the generous families who donate - your gifts keep giving!
St Kilda Mums volunteer Jill took six clothing bags to West Arnhem Land recently where they were distributed to children through the Gunbalanya women's safe house. Thanks to Thursday's gorgeous grannies who packed the bags
