Each year 10% of the profits from the School Fete support local and overseas charities. This year, 5% donated to Australian Lutheran World Service, 2.5% to Geelong Mums and 2.5% to Strive2Thrive. Strive2Thrive is a unique exercise and wellbeing program, servicing the cancer community in the Geelong region. It is a volunteer run program.
Thank you to everyone who donated to the appeal for items for Geelong Mums. Members of the Parent’s and Friends dropped off the items to Geelong Mums on Wednesday who were most appreciative of the donations and thanked the St John’s community for their support.
Along with the donations of clothing and baby items, a cheque for $561 was handed to Geelong Mums to be used for the purchase of car seats or cots/mattresses.
