We are proud to support local community group GIRL FRIDAY
is a group of local ladies who meet for lunch and raise funds to support women and children's issues in our local community. Funds raised at this event will be distributed to Women's Refuges that they support in the Newcastle area. The luncheons generally attract between 150 and 200 women.
Women who find themselves in refuges have found the courage to flee often abusive situations. They leave with only what they are wearing, left with little or no money, clothes, food or resources. These women are also very emotional as the courage it takes to leave these controlling abusive situations really leaves them drained with no self-esteem. To make the final break isn't something that happens quickly, it may take some women several attempts to finally seek help and make a fresh start for themselves and their children. The aim of GIRL FRIDAY
is to provide some basic comforts and supplies for the women and children so they can start the task of planning for their future and to dare to dream of better things to come.
Girl Friday hosts two luncheons a year each one raising funds for different womens and/or childrens needs in the local community.
