A valued part of The Smith Family

Kenmore VIEW Club


The Kenmore VIEW Club supports disadvantaged students and their families because all young people are entitled to a good education.

Formed in 1990, the club currently sponsors ten Learning for Life students. Although fund raising is our main goal, activities are organised to also enhance the lives of our own members.

There are social networking groups that meet at least monthly. Our club has several interest groups including two book clubs, walking, gardening,dining out groups plus a walking group, a Mahjong group and a movie group.

Luncheon meetings held monthly include guest speakers as well as lucky door prizes, raffles, book exchange, and at times a trading table.

New members are most welcome.

Contact Jean 0409 268 646, for further information about our club.


  • Monthly meetings are held every 3rd Monday of the month, commencing at 10.45 am for 11.15 am, at The Bellbowrie Tavern.

Brisbane River on MV Neptune 


2019 May

A glorious, sunny and  warm late Autumn day for a cruise on the Brisbane River on MV Neptune. Sixteen ladies from Kenmore VIEW Club enjoyed the changing riverfront scenery over a Devonshire morning tea. Lunch was enjoyed at the historic Breakfast Creek Hotel. After a short walk around the River back to the jetty we re-joined the MV Neptune for the return trip to Southbank. A delightful day organised by our Program Officers Paula and Judy.

Annual Fundraising 

Kenmore VIEW Club held its annual fundraising afternoon tea on the last Saturday in April. A glorious sunny and warm afternoon provided the backdrop at Anne Bamford’s home for the seventh year in a row. Fine bone china, beautifully set tables complete with the menu for a sumptuous  beautifully presented variety of afternoon treats completed the scene.

Guests and Members from Surfers Paradise, Redlands Evening, Chapel Hill, and Centenary VIEW Clubs attended, along with our National Councillor, Lyn Masters. VIEW friendship was in abundance and along with lovely raffle and lucky door prizes made for a very enjoyable afternoon. We raised enough funds to support another two students which was our aim.

2019 February

A special morning tea was held for our newest members on Saturday 23 February. Our special interest groups (walking, Mahjong and Book Club)  provided details of each group and invited new members to join any of the groups. Several new members are learning to play mah-jong and others have joined the walking group to enjoy more fun and friendship. This was a very enjoyable event.


Kenmore Evening 28th Birthday

Kenmore VIEW Club celebrated its 28th birthday in July 2018.  Members enjoyed a delightful birthday lunch, lots of lucky door prizes, raffles and cake cutting and of course ‘Happy Birthday.’  The cake was cut by two of our original Members, Nan and Diana.  The Bunnings raffle, which was a great fundraiser for the students we support, was  also drawn, with prizes mostly going to Members of the Club. We were joined  by Members of Chapel Hill VIEW Club to celebrate our birthday with fun and friendship aplenty.



Kenmore VIEW Club is the oldest Club in Brisbane by a few weeks. In her welcome, President Anne provided a synopsis of the achievements and changes in the Club over the past 28 years. She also provided a detailed outline of the ways in which the Club had assisted The Smith Family from the very early days of counselling, handing out clothes and food parcels and then the “Educate’ program which then became ‘Learning for Life.’



Keep up to date with what is happening around the clubs.
