GIRLS NIGHT OUT

Each year, our Complete Kids staff hold a Girls Night Out movie night to raise money for Breast Cancer Research.

The Breast Cancer Charity is of course, very close to our hearts as one of our own, Maz, fought and won the fight against Breast Cancer only 2 years ago.

This year, we wanted to make our Girls Night Out even bigger and invite all of our wonderful families.

We asked our families to invite Mum, Sister, Aunty and friends and we were amazed by the turn out… 108 ladies arrived to show their support.

We are pleased to announce that we raised $575! 

We would like to thank all of the lovely ladies who came to our Girls Night Out and we hope to see you all again next year.

 

Thanks

TRIVIA NIGHT FUNDRAISER

On the 18th of October we held our 2nd Trivia Night Fundraiser to raise  money for Sunbury Early Intervention.

The night was a great success.

There were laughs along with competitive streaks, there were table rivalries and bidding wars.

The Gisborne Golf club did a fantastic job as our Trivia Night venue and we would like to Thank the team at Gisborne Golf Club for the great job they did in looking after our 120 guests!

We were overwhelmed with the amount of  donations from local businesses and from our families,  and we are very pleased to announce that absolutely Everything SOLD!

The best news is… we raised a total of…
$5474.45!
(That’s more than double the money that we raised last year) – AMAZING!

This money goes straight to Sunbury Early Intervention to support the wonderful work that they do working with children with disabilities.

Thank you again to all of you who donated and to those of you who attended.

A special BIG THANK YOU to our wonderful owners Todd and Deb for hosting this great event.

 

Our CK Colour Run for Osteoarthritis

On the last Friday of our September Vacation Care program, Complete Kids held our very own Colour Run to raise awareness for children with arthritis.

Thalia Salt (one of our OSHC children) is 9 years old and was diagnosed with Osteoarthritis at the age of 6. Due to this medical condition,  Thalia requires crutches and a wheelchair to assist her, due to the pain she experiences when walking.  Having gone through many, many surgeries and having to use aids to move around has not affected Thalia’s bright and bubbly spirit. Thalia is in fact, is a true inspiration as she smiles and encourages others to learn about Osteoarthritis.

During our colour run, Thalia became the event photographer and greeted everyone at the end of the race with a  lollipop. She has even started her own Facebook page called “Hippy, Hoppy, Happy” https://www.facebook.com/HippyHoppyHappy  where she raises awareness about childhood arthritis.

After our CK Colour Run,  Thalia came to visit our Koala Kindergarten to give an educational talk and read a story, that Thalia wrote herself, about childhood arthritis. Our Koalas Kindergarten children had been working all morning on creating a beautiful rainbow for Thalia and they enjoyed watched her ride through the rainbow on her wheelchair.

We would like to thank Thalia and her family for our visit and for being such an inspiration.
