Today we visited the inaugural fundraiser for the new women’s shelter in Parramatta. It struck us that there wasn’t already a service like this in the area. We’re told that previously when women have been in need, the closest emergency accommodation was 20km away in Liverpool. Now, thanks to the hard work of these amazing volunteers, there is a local option for women, with or without children, who need assistance. The Parramatta Women’s Shelter is open and they’re ready for the community to get behind them and show support in such ways as today’s’ high tea. Set in the beautiful and historic grounds of Old Government House in Parramatta Park, guests were treated to a delicious high tea and enjoyed raffles to further support the cause. It was a perfect afternoon for an important cause and we were honoured to help promote this much-needed service. Thanks to the following guests for saying yes to a photo!
