Women’s Giving Circle celebrates first grant projects at Christmas garden drinks

NRCF AdminImpact, News

Four women socialise at an event to fundraise for empowering women and girls. They look relaxed, with a drink in their hand, standing together and smiling.

Circle members gathered in the garden at Clunes for Christmas Drinks and up update from the two projects underway thanks to the Empowering Women and Girls Grant. 

It was truly a celebration of the hard work that this year’s grant recipients, Kyogle Family Support Services and Northern Rivers Community Gateway, are putting into their grant projects. 

The afternoon was also a celebration of just what can be achieved when a group of like-minded, community driven women join forces to have social impact beyond what they could achieve alone.
