An update from Days for Girls – Allora and District

Last month’s gathering saw the start of assembling the kits for the refugee consignment for September this year.


Heather Goonan from Allora Days for Girls accepting the Commonwealth Bank Community Award from Bank Representative Leeanne James.

We are aiming for 200 kits but if we can get more done then this would be outstanding.  

Should there be any other sewers out there who would be willing to give us a hand helping give dignity and opportunity to girls and ladies around the world, please contact us. 

Sewing can be done at gatherings or at home.

If you can’t attend our monthly gatherings, there is certainly sewing which can be completed at home. Please contact one of our executive team for further details.

Some members of the group sold tickets at the Warwick RSL Club’s Sunday raffles which will assist in our fundraising efforts. 

Our fundraising initiative Allora DfG “Container for Cash’ account has had several donations so far. 

People and businesses can use the code ‘C10749279’ when depositing their eligible containers and the refund will be directly deposited into the Allora DfG account. 

Please contact Kaylene via the Allora DfG email if you would like containers to be collected or they can be brought along or dropped off at any monthly gathering.

As always, the group is requesting donations of ladies new cotton knickers, new face washers, new flannelette, new 100% cotton (non-stretch) material. 

Please think of us if you are doing a cupboard clean out. Items can be dropped into Allora True Value Hardware store, Cassaz Colourful Curls Allora or Bryson’s Florist Warwick marked as Days for Girls. 

If dropping items in can you please text, phone or email contacts below so that we know to pick things up as not all executive members live in town.
