Bag sales raise funds for char­ity

Busi­ness helps Share the Dig­nity

Bayside and Northern Suburbs Star - - NEWS -

IT’S not of­ten a busi­ness owner sells some­thing with­out mak­ing a proft, but Sandgate busi­ness owner Danielle Goldstone has some­thing more im­por­tant than money in mind.

Ms Goldstone’s Brighton Road store Some­thing About Au­drey has be­come the first bricks-and-mortar shop to stock Shorn­cliffe-based char­ity Share the Dig­nity’s Hand­bags with Heart range.

Two de­signer black hand­bags, with cus­tom pink lin­ing – in salute to the char­ity’s colour of choice – make up the range pre­vi­ously only avail­able on the char­ity’s web­site.

Ms Goldstone said she was ap­proached by char­ity founder and Shorn­cliffe res­i­dent Rochelle Courte­nay about stock­ing the bags – an idea that Ms Goldstone jumped at.

“I just thought it was a great idea,” she said.

Ms Goldstone said Share the Dig­nity’s work to pro­vide home­less women, of­ten vic­tims of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence, with ba­sic san­i­tary needs had struck a chord with her.

“I’ve never heard of a char­ity do­ing work like this be­fore,” she said.

Ms Goldstone said the bags were avail­able in two de­signs – the Jane Bag, a chic black tote which she said made an ideal lap­top bag, and the more ca­sual Paula Bag.

Find them at Some­thing about Au­drey, 111 Brighton Road.
