Bubbly brekky for a cause

The not-for-profit organisation seeks to achieve positive change by providing advocacy, programs and services for women, families and communities.

Program co-ordinator Cathy Stubbs said funds raised would go into the two major programs, helping young girls achieve their dreams and breast cancer survivors recover from surgery.

‘The Encore program is an innovative and inspiring approach to recovery from breast cancer surgery,’ Mrs Stubbs said.

‘It’s a gentle exercise program, which meets the exercise and support needs of women after the trauma of their treatment, in a nurturing and supportive environment.

‘Every Girl aims to achieve positive change and enable the girls to develop strong self-esteem, to grow in self-confidence and develop strong leadership skills.’

The program was recently run at Lockridge Primary School and deputy principal Andrew Knight said he had seen a boost from all the senior girls.

‘It has equipped them with a range of skills and attitudes that will be invaluable as they make the transition to high school, adolescence and adulthood,’ he said.

Mr Knight said he had also noted a huge change in their confidence and willingness to act in their community.

The event will include a lavish breakfast with a glass of bubbly and a speech by Professor Lyn Beazley.
