Westfield Local Heroes

Please vote for Pat Hall in the Westfield Local Heroes. If she wins she will be able to give $10,000 of much needed funds to the women’s education and employment scholarship project. This scholarship gives a woman guaranteed paid employment hours in one of our social enterprises. It is all based on the number of votes so we are trying to get the word out there to vote for Pat. The link is below and you need to click through to the Liverpool Westfield section where you will see a photo of Pat to vote. Please help Pat to help the women in our community. We know our work changes the lives of these women and their family. Please share to your friends, family, businesses, networks to support us by voting. Thank you!

Share the Dignity

Liverpool Neighbourhood Connections were proud to donate 67 bags full of essentials for homeless women to 'Share the Dignity'! So glad we could bring smiles to those in need.
