The Peter Pan Committee
The Peter Pan Committee (PPC) has been directly supporting the work of Barnardos for many years and during that time has raised millions of dollars to help children suffering from abuse, neglect, homelessness and poverty.
The PPC is a major fundraising committee for Barnardos Australia and over the past decade has raised more than $2 million to fund a number of critical child welfare programs and services, helping thousands of children and young people. The committee also contributes by raising important public awareness and goodwill.
Only a small amount of the work done by Barnardos Australia is supported through government grants and as such Barnardos is required to fundraise for the majority of costs. Peter Pan is committed to ensuring these programs are a success through our volunteer and fundraising efforts.
There are two important fundraising arms of the PPC - Peter Pan Fundraising Events and the Peter Pan Op Shop.
Peter Pan Events
The Peter Pan fundraising activities have included literary lunches with guest speakers Anna Funder, Cameron and Sam Bloom, Kate McClymont, Li Cunxin, Lindy Chamberlain, and Germaine Greer; fashion parades from leading French and Italian designers; gambling nights; golf days; exclusive film screenings; as well as glamorous cocktail parties and events held in private houses.

Peter Pan Op Shop
The Peter Pan Op Shop was originally set up during World War II when clothing rationing was introduced. Every year since, a sale of donated designer, vintage and brand name clothing has been held bi-annually, raising millions of dollars for Barnardos Australia’s work with vulnerable children. It is a must-go on the Sydney fashion scene and the ultimate guilt free shopping experience. In recent years the sale has moved to Club Rose Bay and has expanded into new clothing in addition to some of Sydney’s best vintage finds.
We would like to thank Sass&Bide, Tigerlily, Alice McCall, Mink Pink, Bec&Bridge, Zimmerman, Samantha Wills, Collette Dinnigan and the many more who have all come on board to create impact in raising even more funds for children in dire need.
