Support The Girls Australia Comes To Hawkesbury

Written by: The Hawkesbury Phoenix


Support The Girls Australia is a charity that was birthed from a desire to do something practical to ensure that women of all ages were treated with dignity and respect, and shown that they were valued.

How do they do it?

With a simple morning tea, a lovely care bag gift and a professionally fitted bra.

That’s right - bra.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the work that Support The Girls Australia does a brilliant job of connecting with women, particularly those women who need a bit of a helping hand.

Support The Girls Australia was at St Andrew's Richmond this week, connecting with women over a delicious morning tea, a small care pack and a complimentary bra fitted by a professional.

Member for Macquarie, Susan Templeman was at the latest event and thanked the founder and CEO of Support The Girls Australia, Jane Holmes for her efforts.

Support The Girls Australia welcomes donations of money and products, so long as products meet the requirements set out below.

Previously loved bras must:

  • have the shoulder straps in good working order;
