It’s on once again.
‘Share the Dignity’ is about to kick off ‘It’s in the Bag’ Christmas Appeal drive, to help provide sanitary and personal care items to women within our community who are doing it tough.

You can either purchase a bag or recycle a preloved bag (in good condition) and fill it with basic essentials such as pads and tampons, deodorant, toothbrush and toothpaste, brush and comb, shampoo and soap as well as a few little luxuries like lip balm, new socks, a magazine and anything that would make a woman or teenage girl feel special. You can even pop a thoughtful note of encouragement, into the bag.

There are thousands of women and girls around the country who are experiencing homelessness, sleeping rough, or seeking refuge in domestic violence shelters each and every night.

From Friday November 22 until Saturday December 7 you can drop your bags off at Bunnings Warehouse at South Grafton, where a collection bin has been placed (just ask a staff member for directions).

Your act of kindness can help put a smile on the face of someone who is doing it tough.

So come on. Help to make this Christmas a little bit brighter for women and girls in need.

For more information contact: Liz Robinson 0403 157 790.

Now you’re here …

… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.

If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it. For as little as $5, you can support the Independent – Thank you.
