Central Coast Event Celebrates Women’s Achievement And Explores Issues


ShelterBox Response Team volunteer, Peita Berzins with some young supporters


ShelterBox Australia attended another successful Central Coast Women’s Expo, held on Saturday March 5 at Ourimbah campus, which is part of Newcastle University. The event promotes awareness about women’s issues and uniting the community.

ShelterBox Response Team volunteer, Peita Berzins said, 

It is uplifting to see how much good is being done by volunteers in so many local organisations. These included WOW (Women of the Waves), Days for Girls, Central Coast a Capella, Breast Screening as well as many health related stalls. As well, seminars ran throughout the day. I attended a thought-provoking, well-presented one on Gender Equity.

Our ShelterBox stall was comfortably ensconced right near the entry between various local Rotary club stalls and it was very nice to see friendly faces like Christine Owen and Tina Latham from Kincumber Rotary, Joan Redmond from Woy Woy Rotary as well as Sandra Davies from Terrigal Rotary.

Many attendees were interested in the recent Fiji cyclone and people gave generously, almost $150 was donated.

We are also pleased to welcome more people to become ShelterBox Ambassadors on the Central Coast – anyone who may be interested, please contact me at berzinspj@westnet.com.au
