On Monday 15th August 2016,  Jan Antosiewicz,  Dot Carpenter, and Lyn Robilliard from the Ballarat Club of Soroptomist International were hosted by Judith Bailey FBBG (L-R)  at the Old Police Station to hand over their cheque for $200 in support of the bushfire potting project. These funds gave seed funding to start our potting up of plant material.

The Soroptomist’s were delighted at being able to contribute to this community effort, our thanks to the Soroptomist’s for their support.
