A valued part of The Smith Family

Caloundra Evening VIEW Club


Caloundra Evening VIEW Club was formed in 1995.

Currently, the club sponsors eight Smith Family Learning for Life students and is actively involved in fundraising activities to raise donations for The Smith Family programs.

Our club has a positive interest in local activities, with many members not only supporting the disadvantaged children in our area but also volunteering in many and various ways. 

Members of our club are a diverse group of about 120 women from many walks of life and life stages. Our official meeting is held on the second Tuesday of each month at the Caloundra Power Boat Club, with an average attendance of some 90 enthusiastic members.

Our members meet regularly to share their passion and experience.  They build lasting friendships and make a tremendous difference in the lives of the young students whom our club supports.  We welcome women from all walks of life to join us and make a difference.  We are always open to new members, so please get in touch today and come and see what VIEW is all about.


  • Meeting Day is 2nd Tuesday each month at 6.45pm

Once each year we fundraise by engaging in the Bunnings Sausage Sizzle and the Sunshine Coast Marathon. Some members are also supporting The Smith Family Learning For Life program by actively working with disadvantaged children as mentors or tutors. Our Club also provides financial support, sponsoring ongoing education for eight of these students.

What We've Been Doing:

Money for Jam!

Caloundra Evening VIEW Club member, Sandra Harding, has been looking on the bright side during isolation by raising funds for the club at home. Sandra has taken donations of fruit and turned them into a range of delicious jams. Her rosella, raspberry, berry, fig and marmalade jams were eagerly snapped up by VIEW Club members, raising over $500. Sandra feels she can now retire from the kitchen, knowing local young people will benefit from her efforts through The Smith Family’s Learning for Life Program which supports disadvantaged students. Although the Caloundra Club remains in recess, many other club members have been planting, sewing, quilting and knitting to create products for their next trading table. The 115 members have also taken care to keep their social network alive, encouraging one another with regular phone calls and emails.

Developing VIEW Clubs

Continuing to grow existing clubs and creating new clubs remains just as important today as it was 55 years ago when a small group of women met with the object of forming the very first VIEW Club.
