The Whittlesea VIEW Club is looking for new members who are interested in giving back to their community and making new connections with women in the area.
VIEW, which stands for Voice, Interests and Education of Women, is a network of about 300 clubs and more than 14,000 women across Australia. It and provides a place for women to connect in the community, enjoy social activities and develop friendships – and also demonstrates the values of education charity The Smith Family.
For its Back to School Appeal, The Smith Family is calling on the community to sponsor children experiencing disadvantage through the Learning for Life education support program.
VIEW is the largest community sponsor of Learning for Life, which provides children with financial assistance for essential school supplies, and access to out-of-school tutoring and mentoring programs.
A Smith Family team member connected to the families is on hand to support the child’s specific needs and interests.
In addition to their support for The Smith Family, Whittlesea VIEW Club is a new group that hosts regular social events and luncheons and is eager to grow their membership.
Club meetings take place at 10.30am on the second Thursday of each month at Whittlesea Bowls Club, at 101 Church Street.
Anyone interested in becoming a member can call Lyn on 0409 145 073 or visit www.view.org.au for more information.
