Established in 2007, Notting Hill Neighbourhood House celebrated 15 years of bringing social inclusion and lifelong learning to our community this year! Over 250 neighbours joined us to celebrate on a lovely Sat arvo, making it one of the biggest event we have had at the neighbourhood house in some time!
This event was supported by Monash Council to inaugurate the newly upgraded Westerfield Drive playground funded by City of Monash! Thank you to Kate, Colin, Chris (from Monash Sustainability Department) and Mayor Stuart James, we look forward to your continued support.
There was bounds of fun to be found in every corner of the neighbourhood house, including yarn bombing with Joanne, wildlife presentation with Animals of Oz, bubbles play with Hoop Dogg a.k.a Hayley Hoopla, outdoor sketching with ART n EASEL, photo booth fundraiser with photographer Trac and various market stalls Friends Of The Children Foundation, Jobs Victoria, Monash Sustainability and Crazy Sock fundraising for Pinewood Primary School!
We are proud to have collaborated with a number of local businesses and neighbours, including coffee from Inchmeal, soup from Four Point Grind, cookies from Bake Nerd, pin badges from Student Union Rec Library, MSA and live music by Launa Liu!
We are grateful to have raised $933! Every little donation and purchase of a snag, soda or raffle ticket helped reach this goal. We would like to extend a sincere thank you to Trusted Financial Choice, Community Bank Pinewood and Carina Garland for donating the raffle prizes!
A special thank you to all of our super-duper amazing event volunteers! Shout out to Bre, Michael, Shane, Tarity and Gillian from Sent Collective, Tripti, Othman, Mike, Judy, Kariema, Ayush, Nitara, Krisha, Isha and Sukhanpreet!
And of course, thank you to every neighbour and community member who came down to celebrate our big day!
