Zonta Club of Northern Beaches Inc Chartered 1975
Located Northern beaches of Sydney
Meets 4th Monday for dinner
THE CLUB IN ACTION
We award study grants worth several thousands of dollars, including paying for textbooks and computer equipment. Study grants enable local women to access further education, and improve not only their own lives, but those of their children. We also make student support grants to young women in Years 11 and 12 at local schools who are having difficulties at home.
Supporting victims of domestic violence
Our club has formed a strong and close relationship with the Northern Beaches Women’s Resource Centre. This support includes donations of new household items and paying for children’s swimming lessons, after-school care, support tuition and ‘back to school’ kits.
Breast Care Cushions
Zonta Breast Care Cushions are a great comfort to women who have undergone breast surgery. The cushions are made by members and women in the local community, and are given free of charge to local hospitals. Since 2005, our club provided approximately 1300 cushions.
Our club has a very strong record in making Zonta Birthing Kits which are distributed to women in the developing countries under an education program with hospital support. Each year, up to 3000 birthing kits are assembled with a great deal of community involvement and member fellowship.
Fundraising is obviously an essential part of club activities, and we try to have as much fun as possible! Past fundraising activities include:
- Trivia nights
- International Women’s Day
- Australia Day Breakfast at Newport Beach
- Special Social Events
WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW MORE
We are always looking for the next generation of community-minded, professional women to continue the service and advocacy work of Zonta in our area and beyond. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have an interest in becoming a Zonta member or just want to help support our work.
You don’t need to be a member of a Zonta club to contribute to Zonta’s efforts to improve the lives of women and girls. Service projects always need money – your donation to Zonta’s work in general or to a specified local or internal project is welcomed.
Zonta Club of Northern Beaches thanks the DeeWhy RSL for support of our student support program. We also acknowledge the assistance of the Pittwater and Dee Why Council with the organisation of International Women’s Day Breakfast and Australia Day Breakfast.
