A valued part of The Smith Family

Gawler VIEW Club


The Gawler VIEW Club was inaugurated in 2003.  Our Club makes regular donations to The Smith Family, and sponsors thirteen (13) Learning for Life students.  Through The Smith Family our Club also provides funding to a local school for their Let's Read, Learning Clubs, and Breakfast Club programs, as well as reading mats, library bags, and stationery supplies.  Each year we support The Smith Family's Toy and Book Appeal.  Our Members mentor at local schools with children who have learning difficulties; and we also volunteer in the local community, as well as at The Smith Family offices.

The Gawler VIEW Club, together with other VIEW Clubs in our Zone, host an annual International Women's Day (IWD) luncheon.  Our Club is also represented on the Gawler IWD Breakfast Committee.

Gawler VIEW Club Members come from not only the Gawler area but as far away as Kensington, Modbury, and Elizabeth in the south, and many Barossa Valley towns in the north.  We are a vibrant group of women who are welcome to participate in as much or as little fund raising activities as they choose.  The main emphasis is on fun and friendship where we enjoy a wide range of social functions throughout the year as we support The Smith Family student programs.


  • Meeting on the 4th Monday of every month (may vary due to public holidays)
  • at 10.15 am for 10.45 am start;
  • at The Gawler Arms Hotel;
  • Our monthly meetings usually include interesting guest speakers to share their insights on a variety of topics, and lunch.
