Community Packing Event 18/5/18

Supporting our community together by reaching out and helping the wider community in need.

Recently over 40 Brand New Day members and friends came together for an epic night of packing. 

In the 7 years since Brand New Day has been supporting our community, this Children’s Essential Comfort Backpack and Crisis Toiletry Bag initiative, in my opinion, would have to be the biggest activity yet!

Because of the wonderful donation from Camden Golf Club Lady Members, Marie Copp and Mr & Mrs Jackson we had the funds and our Committee had the idea.

It then took a lot of conversations, negotiations and organising but as a community we pulled it off!

Over 400 back packs for children aged 0 – 8 years, escaping violence and over 120 Crisis toiletry bags for women and their children in crisis, were assembled.
