First Annual Long Lunch

Posted on 30 November 2018
First Annual Long Lunch

The board wishes to thank everyone who was involved in the 1st Annual Luurrng Lunch, it was a greater success than we ever imagined.

Collectively, so far, this event has raised OVER $12,000!

That is a lot help for local kids, so you all can be congratulated on a great community effort.       


To keep you informed. we have already had a couple of young kid's names been put forward for support. Plus, we have been talking to local school Principals, so we can get to the "grassroot" needs of the community and assess who needs this funding in line with the purpose of The Foundation.

It is quite a humbling experience when you listen to some of the issues that some young kids are enduring right now we simply aim to give them the support they need to be their best.

We also welcome YOUR input if you know of somebody who needs a hand. We will develop a communication channel in the New Year, so you can put names forward of who you know needs help.


Below are some of the results from the day:
