Below is a group photo of our members who recently raised the amazing sum of $2,800.00 conducting a "Walk in the Park" . Members canvassed family and friends to sponsor them for the walk, around the Yokine Park, approximately 5 kilometres.
The Yokine Bowling Club provided us with a venue to meet and hold our delicious morning tea, which was supplied by members. Our day was a huge success and enjoyed by all.
On Tuesday 25 June, Year 11 and 12 Senior Debaters (Declan Tonkin, Imogen Bowley, Emily Camilleri, Xavier Jarvis, Sofia Vecchio and Joshua Fairweather, along with chairperson Anisha Jain and timekeeper Mariella Pizzolante) took centre stage in the eLearning Centre for a feature debate on the topic of homelessness concerning older women. Thirty members of the City of Bayswater VIEW Club were invited guests. The afternoon was a great success. Well done teams!
The VIEW Club is active in our local community supporting the education of disadvantaged Australian children. Through fundraising activities and social events, members raise money that goes directly to The Smith Family’s learning and mentoring programs for disadvantaged students.
VIEW Club member, Mrs Rena O’Sullivan, commended our students for carefully addressing the issue of homelessness:
“I did like the idea of reminding the listeners that these women could be ‘your grandmother’ and that there is a social and moral obligation to care for vulnerable people.
It was very enlightening for us to meet these articulate and engaging young people and we wish all your students all the best for their studies.”

May Walk In The Park
Earlier in the month we held a walk-a-thon. It was a lot of fun with as much talking as walking going on.
Many of the members brought friends along for the walk in the Park - there were 30 ladies in total, and a substantial amount was raised on the day. The members who were not able to walk provided a wonderful morning tea at the finish.

Vinnies and Bunnings visit in May
Yoke Lim from St. Vincent De Paul informed us of the amazing job ‘Vinnes’ do in and around Perth. From feeding the homeless nutritious meals, proving short term and half way accommodation for the homeless, emergency accommodation for families, providing clothing and furniture to the needy, counselling services as well as their many charity retail outlets around Perth. They are about to open two more outlets in our suburbs. We applaud the huge contribution they make in easing the difficulties many face in our communities.
We also had a visit from Bunnings personnel bearing donations of: hats, pencil cases, rulers, pens, bears, water bottles etc., to go to local schools supported by The Smith Family. Our members are are distributing now.

At our April meeting we had a very interesting speaker, Ann Begg, from 5W (Women Welcome Women World Wide). Below is a picture of Ann with our Vice President, Pam Burton.
Ann told us of her various travels around the world, and Australia, staying with other 5W women. This greatly helps to cut the cost of travel!! Ann has also hosted many interesting women from around the world.
I think a few of our members, who love to travel, will be thinking of joining 5W in the future!
