International Women's Day Proceeds Presented to Port Stephens Family and Neighbourhood Services

March 22, 2018

 

Port Stephens MP Kate Washington and Paterson MP Meryl Swanson have today presented the proceeds of the recent International Women’s Day breakfast to the Port Stephens Family and Neighbourhood Services.


The well attended breakfast co-hosted by the two MPs saw the return of an International Women’s Day event to the Raymond Terrace area.


This event heard from young women high school leaders from Irrawang High School and Hunter River High School, as well as Hunter High School principal Deb Dibley.


The Port Stephens Family and Neighbourhood Service is the local homelessness and domestic violence referral centre and offers a range of services including housing support, financial counselling, parenting support and more.


Raffle prizes donated by local women-run home businesses and an online auction of artworks from Lemon Tree Passage artist Jenny Crozier generated significant donations.


The event was made possible due to the support of Newcastle Airport, Hunter Water, Raymond Terrace MarketPlace, Tomago Aluminium and Hunter Region Botanic Gardens.


The event collected approximately $4,000, with proceeds going towards the Port Stephens Family and Neighbourhood Service and the volunteer run Hunter Region Botanic Gardens.


Quotes attributable to Kate Washington MP, Member for Port Stephens


“Meryl and I were delighted by the community’s response to our inaugural International Women’s Day event and very grateful for everyone’s generosity on the day.


“This event is an opportunity to showcase local women leaders whilst also acknowledging the extra challenges many women in our community face."


Quotes attributable to Meryl Swanson MP, Member for Paterson


“We are very grateful to Newcastle Airport, Hunter Water, Raymond Terrace MarketPlace and Tomago Aluminium for their sponsorship of this event. This outcome would not have been possible without their support.


“The volunteers at the Hunter Region Botanic Gardens put on a wonderful event and showcased their beautiful gardens.”
