Join us for our International Women's Day event and celebrate YOU!
We are very excited to have Kate Austin, Founder & CEO of Pinchapoo as our very special guest speaker. Come and hear how Kate turned her life around from couch-surfing in her teens to founding Pinchapoo, the largest not for profit distributor of personal hygiene products nationally. Kate lives by the belief that having access to personal hygiene products is a basic human right and one that's essential to physical and mental wellbeing.
Then relax and enjoy a short but restful guided meditation/mindfulness session, followed by the opportunity to mingle with a cuppa and morning tea.
The session is free however a donation to Pinchapoo of either toiletry goods or a gold coin would be greatly appreciated.
