Inaugural Woman of the Year

We have over the years seen other organisations and also other Quota Clubs present an award for community service. This year we have decided to have our first Woman of the Year Award. Each year we will be selecting a member of the community for their outstanding services to the community.

This year our inaugural year we have chosen to give this award to Zena Kennedy. Over the past few years Zena has given her time to Quota at their yearly Craft and Gift Fairs. She volunteers her time teaching cards for Bluecare and at Ronald McDonald House in Herston. She organises charity events to raise funds for many charities. Her cards have been packed and sent over Queensland and as far as Myanmar in Burma. A lady that loves what she does and is always ready to help.

Janette presented Zena with the award, along with a bottle of bubbly and a bunch of roses. Thank you for your support over the years and for all you do for others.

Mummy’s Wish

GUEST SPEAKER –

 Today at our Change Over, the guest speaker was Bernadette Vella founder of Mummy’s Wish.
Bernadette spoke to us about her journey and what led to this amazing organisation being born.
The Mission and Vision of Mummy’s wish is to support Australian families with children aged 12 years and under through the provision of practical, immediate and non-means tested support whilst Mum is receiving treatment for cancer. To manage the distressing impact of cancer on Mums and their family unit.
Did you know, every day around Australia 13 other families, just like the founder of Mummy’s Wish have their lives turned upside down when they find out Mum has cancer. Mummy’s wish have touched over 2000 families since 2007 and expect that number to increase by the end of 2017.

Quota Carindale will be holding a fundraising event later in 2017 for support of Mummy’s Wish.
