Sarina Russo Job Fair
Sarina Russo provides job access Australia wide
They very kindly invited us to their job fair, where we presented our services to all participants. We have partnered with them to provide their clients with appropriate clothing for a variety of job interviews .
C4U provides clothing for many different occasions. Our volunteers are able to dress clients in just the right clothes , to suit any figure and for any occasion. Clients invariably leave our boutique feeling far more confident than they arrived.
We are proud to help our community by assisting women get back to work.
Here are some photos of our hard working volunteers, Julia Worthington and Lynne Woollard who assisted members of the public with information about our great service.
Our President was also present with state and regional managers of Sarina Russo.
It was a good day all round. The more women we impact the greater our satisfaction.
International Womens Breakfast
International Women’s Day has been observed from the early 1900’s, which was a time of great change in the Industrial world. It commemorates the struggle for women’s rights, each year they celebrate a different theme, this year the theme is ‘Be Bold For Change’.
Prior to the day C4U dressed 11 bold Tootgarook Primary School women who were about to celebrate International Women Day in great style.…
You will see from the photos how wonderful these women looked.
They should feel very proud of themselves for a number of reasons.
Not so long ago they got together with a wonderful idea – ‘The Lunch for Everyone Program’. Once a week they cook lunch for a whole primary school which includes children, teachers and parents. All they ask is a gold coin donation, although if that’s not possible, no one will be turned away without a meal. These women obtained a grant to set up there project which has turned out to be a massive success.
C4U was extremely proud to dress these creative women.
This is a fine example of what women can do when they see a need and find a way to address it. None of them had any previous experience in this area, however they worked it out, and that’s a lesson for all of us.
If more women got together in solidarity with others, many community problems could be solved at a local level.
This is the power of women.
Make up artistry for the mature woman
C4U Networking Breakfast
Grand Opening with Rosie Batty!
The official opening of our Boutique, April 2015, with Rosie Batty – Named Australian of the Year 2015 and a campaigner against domestic violence towards women.
Many of you will have heard Rosie Batty’s story. Her son Luke was murdered by his own father at cricket practice.
It was a horrifying event that captured the attention of the entire nation. Soon after, Rosie spoke passionately about the need to address family violence.
Since then Rosie has made it her mission to lift the burden from victims and make family violence every Australian’s business.
“If Luke hadn’t died in such an extreme way, I’d just be one of those ‘family violence’ people no one listens to”. Rosie Batty
Rosie started the Luke Batty Foundation so her son Luke did not die in vain. Now she is asking Australians to stand with her beside every victim.
Please stand with Rosie and the Never Alone campaign.
