Bellinger Valley VIEW Club was formed in 1985.
We are an enthusiastic and friendly group of women who provide support and friendship for each other while promoting the work of The Smith Family. Our club raises funds to proudly sponsor five disadvantaged students on the Smith Family's Learning for Life program. We take pride in hearing about their educational journeys and achievements. A number of members tutor school children with reading at the local primary school. This is greatly appreciated by the school community.

2019 International Women’s Day
The Bellinger Valley VIEW Club held an International Women’s Day Celebration on Friday March 8th at the Cedar Bar in Bellingen. We were excited to have so many ladies attending our event with guests from VIEW Clubs in our region including Bonville-Boambee, Urunga, Nambucca/Macksville, and Korora View. Also attending were members of the Bellingen Australian Red Cross, Bellingen CWA and Bellingen Lyons Club.
Our stimulating Guest Speaker was Andrea Cross from the Coffs Harbour Business and Professional Women’s Network which is an advocate for women in the workplace. This organisation is raising awareness in the workplace for women suffering from domestic violence, and women wishing to breastfeed their babies at work. They also advocate for women who lack enough superannuation upon their retirement due to child rearing, illness or having to look after elderly parents.
Members Pamela Cook (left) and Lyn Buckley celebrated special birthdays in November and we were delighted to wish them a "Happy Birthday" at our November Meeting 2108 which was a Christmas Celebration with a Beach Theme.
