SOME tasty Redlands breakfasts have led to $10,000 being raised for the Redlands Centre for Women.

Redlands Community Breakfast founder Sheena Hewlett presented acting RCW chief executive Kerri Long and centre president Lisa Nardone with a cheque for $10,000 at a Friday night wine and cheese get together. 

Ms Long told sponsors and supporters that the money would go a long way in supporting women across the city.

She said the centre was involved in a big range of programs.

Included in these programs were “nurture boxes” for women who gave birth at Redlands Hospital, the Young Parents Connect, Live your Best Life’ 5 week self-development program, Redlands Embracers social program for women struggling with body image issues, Topic Night, Coffee & Chat, GirlsGoals program for teenage girls, In2Work program to assist young women in to the workforce and the Annual International Women’s Day High Tea. 

Garry White, chairman of  Victoria Point Community Bank branch of the Bendigo Bank, said support for such projects was what the bank was all about.

Ms Hewlett also thanked JJ Richards for its support as the platinum sponsor for the fourth year.

She also paid special tribute to Justine Kennedy and her team at Victoria Point Community Bank branch of the Bendigo Bank for sponsoring the event and hosting the evening’s presentation.
