The KIP has been collecting easter eggs for RizeUp, a local charity that provides practical and life-changing support for women and children that are going through extremely difficult times. This Easter, we are one of their 'Easter Bunnies' and have been collecting eggs for the children and their mums who are living in temporary accommodation on the Gold Coast.
RizeUp furnishes homes, free of charge, for women and families leaving domestic violence refuges across Australia and turn an empty shell of a house into a genuine home.
Thank you to our generous Somerset community for the wonderful donations, not only were we were able to fill our list easily, we were able to give our excess eggs to other 'Bunnies' on the Gold Coast to help them fill theirs.
With over 300 children residing in local refuges, it has been a heartwarming experience to witness, in a small way, the collective spirit of our community and the power of coming together in support.
Together we will bring many smiles to the little people in refuge this Easter.
