The Hills Evening Tre­foil Guild’s fi­nal ser­vice for the year was mak­ing up Share the Dig­nity bags, these bags are for home­less women and those flee­ing do­mes­tic vi­o­lence. They are an emer­gency bag, us­ing no longer re­quired hand­bags, they are filled with the es­sen­tials a woman needs, are do­nated by the Tre­foil mem­bers. In­cluded in the bags were soap, deodor­ant, powder, makeup, comb, sham­poo, con­di­tioner, mois­turiser, cleanser, socks, tis­sues, phone card, gift vouch­ers, san­i­tary prod­ucts etc. We were so pleased to be able to make up nearly 40 bulging bags which were de­liv­ered to the Bags with Dig­nity char­ity drop off cen­tre. Our last night was a movie night watch­ing a DVD and the money that would have gone to see­ing a movie was passed on to a char­ity.

Movie nights, his­tor­i­cal walk­ing tours of Par­ra­matta, knit­ting many, many squares made into lots of rugs for the wrapped with Love project, pos­sum bags for or­phan pos­sums for WIRES, rais­ing money for “The Sanc­tu­ary” a home for women tran­si­tion­ing away from do­mes­tic abuse, guest speak­ers, a Crazy Whist night, an

evening at the theatre to see The Wharf Re­view, sewing breast care bags for the hos­pi­tals, cre­at­ing de­men­tia/mem­ory rugs and knit­ting care bears for the chil­dren’s hos­pi­tal. This has been the year for The Hills Evening Tre­foil Guild. As well as a week­end away, lots of laughs great sup­pers and good sup­port­ive guid­ing friends, these are the things that make be­long­ing to The Tre­foil Guild so en­joy­able.
