International Women’s Day in Cranebrook

It’s been a busy week here at the Barnardos Australia Penrith Centre, part of it was our invitation to an International Womens Day morning tea at Nepean Community & Neighbourhood Services (NCNS) just two doors down.

There were guest speakers who came to share and talk about their stories throughout life, we also had various performers such as the Hamava band, a Bollywood Dancer who got us all up to do some Bollywood dancing and the Hands Heart and Feet who got everyone to join in with some drumming and music together.

We then enjoyed a lovely lunch with many discussions happening around the tables. Followed by a Henna workshop and pottery workshop which gave everyone a chance to learn something new and get some wonderful Henna done.

We always value the opportunity to join in these events, spread the word of what we do and learn so much about what everyone else offers in the community to support one another.
