On the 10th of July we hosted our first fundraiser for our new Project of the Year - an indoor picnic! The room was decorated beautifully, and everyone enjoyed feeling cosy with a hot chocolate. After a delicious lunch, our guest speaker Lee Trennidick shared the history of the Australian soldiers involved in the Battle of Villers-Bretonneux, and the unique and ongoing connection between our country and this small town in France. Lee also explained that her father had fought in this battle, and shared her journey to learn more about her own history and this part of the war.
Thank you to the members who attended - we hope you had a great day!
Reminder to please book in for our Annual Mass and roast lunch.
