Support to Makuta – Preventing Youth Suicide in Kiama and surrounds

We are pleased to announce another sewing bee – This time in GERRINGONG. Please use the same links below to book in on either Saturday 29 Aug or Sunday 30 Aug.

R3 was approached by a group of mothers concerned about the recent youth suicides and wanting to do something to raise funds to support prevention programmes in our local schools, sports and youth clubs.

The ladies had the idea of making and sewing face masks as their first fund raising project and of course everyone wants to help.

Due to R3’s successful Kiama Boomerang Bag group and Wild Life Carers sewing bees it was asked if R3 would run sewing bees to make face masks.

Thanks to the Kiama Boomerang Bag group loaning machines and equipment as well as donating fabric R3 is able to run two sewing bees at the Joyce Wheatley Centre, Hindmarch Park, Kiama on Saturday 8th August and Sunday 9th August.

Details of the sewing bee and how to book can be found HERE.
