Thursday 26th June 8pm-11pm The Venny fundraiser at Local Folk cafe, corner of Epsom and Bayswater Roads. Book at http://www.trybooking.com/Booking/BookingEventSummary.aspx?eid=89380 ‘Venny Fundraiser’.
As you know, our adventure playground, The Venny, has had its federal funding cut, and this means an immediate effect on programs such as the Girl’s Group and Meals Nights, not to mention the inevitable impact on its wonderful staff.
The Venny is more than a playground for outdoor fun, it also provides many a refuge, somewhere they can go and play and enjoy childhood as it should be, somewhere they feel safe and respected. This benefits not only those involved, but all of society – we need to show we care.
For now, rather than getting political, The Venny wants us to lend support by way of cash to at least keep the evening programs running. Friends of The Venny are holding a fundraising event at Kensington’s newest place to eat, Local Folk café. For just $25 per ticket, you will receive a complimentary drink as well as delicious finger food. There will be a silent auction on the night. If you have anything suitable for auction, or wish to make a donation, please contact Fiona email@example.com.
