You’ve probably been roped in by big smiles from the Bribie VIEW members at the local markets lately. An eye-catching child’s quilt and Miss Piggy doll have entranced children and grandmothers alike and at $2 per ticket or $5 for 3, passersby have been very generous.

Bribie club supports 5 Australian students with their extra education expenses. Every parent knows how hard this can be having to cope with extras for computers, sports and music lessons or school excursions.

The Smith Family helps families whose children may be disadvantaged by providing funds and mentoring for careers plus numerous excellent programs to assist with their reading, maths and computer skills.

VIEW Clubs across Australia are a division of The Smith Family and they also give women a network and friendship with a lunch meeting and a social outing once a month. Pictured is the beautiful child’s quilt that was donated by a Sunshine Linus quilter for the raffle which is drawn on the 24th June. Enquiries about the raffle or if you’d like to come along to a VIEW occasion to make some new friends call Faye Clark on 3410 7444.
