A valued part of The Smith Family

Brendale Evening VIEW Club

Currently the club sponsors eight Smith Family Learning for Life students and is actively involved in fundraising activities to support these educationally disadvantaged Australian children, as well as raise donations for other Smith Family programmes.

Visitors are always welcome to attend our meetings, make some new friends and enjoy a two course dinner while listening to an interesting guest speaker. Our members also enjoy coffee mornings, outings and social activities.

We are always open to new members, so please get in touch today and come see what it's all about.
