Boxing Day Family Challenge in action, via the Ku-ring-gai edition of Monopoly which was produced a couple of years ago, by Turramurra and Lindfield Community Bank Branches. And lookie what we found in Community Chest! So much fun playing this age old game, which includes all our local haunts! ...
This was a charity initiative and HKWS was one of the very lucky beneficiaries - and the joy just keeps on giving!

As we draw closer to the end of this challenging year, we wish you and your loved ones a peaceful holiday period! It is a special time to reflect on what’s important and show compassion for those who are suffering.
Our Shelter team will be working hard over the Christmas period to support the... women within our community who need extra care at this time of year.
We send our heartfelt thanks to all of our many volunteers and supporters who helped the Shelter through such a difficult year. We achieved a great deal this year, successfully supporting over 80 women and children through the work of our Shelter team, Beecroft House and outreach. Through community support we achieved our long held goal of acquiring a permanent home for our Shelter which will allow us to create a wonderful temporary new home for women and their children impacted by homelessness.
We look forward to a brighter 2021 and working again with our supporters to continue protecting those in need within our community.
- Louise McCann, HKWS Board President

Turramurra and Lindfield Community Bank Branches- more than just bankers - apparently they are now poets as well <3

After an unfortunate failed first delivery, Pomelo Online delivered a wonderful selection of amazing meals to feed our ladies for Christmas lunch.
This wonderful initiative is paid for by their amazing staff who contribute throughout the year to provide Christmas food to people in need. Thank... you so much for supporting HKWS.

It is with a big sad sigh that we have made the decision to shut down our Christmas wrapping stall at Westfield Hornsby, as at close of business today, Sunday. The health and safety of our volunteers and their families are our priority and with the ever-changing COVID situation on the Northern ...Beaches and Greater Sydney, we felt this was the right decision.
The biggest thank you's go out to all the gorgeous volunteers who gave their time to wrap beautifully and the gracious volunteers who unfortunately missed out on sharing the fun. Our photo shows only some of the fabulous faces who donned our aprons over the last couple of days.
Three big public cheers to our Head Elf and Super Volunteer, Margaret Munnings, who, so calmy floor managed the stall this year <3 Margi, your big smile and 'can do' disposition is a gift to us.
And a huge THANK YOU always to Westfield Hornsby for offering the opportunity to us year after year and we look forward to Christmas 2021!
