Zonta pre­pares for spe­cial day

Dalby Herald - - NEWS - Con­trib­uted by Zonta Club of Dalby

THE Zonta Club of Dalby is very ex­cited to an­nounce that plans are well un­der way for an­other In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day Fundrais­ing Break­fast, to be held on March 8 at the Dalby Leagues Club.

This year our guest speak­ers are the team from the Or­ange Sky Laun­dry.

Best mates Nic March­esi and Lu­cas Patch­ett, who were awarded 2016 Young Aus­tralians of the Year, built a free mo­bile laun­dry in their old van to help the home­less and so the or­gan­i­sa­tion be­gan in Oc­to­ber 2014.

This world-first idea has ex­panded to 12 vans through­out the east­ern states of Aus­tralia manned by 931 vol­un­teers wash­ing 367,230kg of free laun­dry to date.

Nic and Lu­cas have found a way to treat oth­ers the way they want to be treated by restor­ing re­spect, rais­ing health stan­dards and re­duc­ing the strain on re­sources.

Do join us for our delicious break­fast, lucky door prize, and multi draw raf­fle, while we lis­ten to this in­spir­ing feat and their con­tin­ued growth.

Tick­ets are on sale at Shrecks Shoes in Dalby or at the door on the morn­ing of the event.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, phone pres­i­dent Linda Marsh on 0457 322 888.
