Thank you to all my hard working committee with out everyone’s combined effort running the emporium would be difficult!
It’s been a challenging year at times, negotiating covid rules, avoiding covid, some getting covid and borders opening.
The emporium continues to grow strength to strength. The success of receiving an NCRF grant and then running workshops free for our community has highlighted the importance of connection through creativity. These workshops have been a huge success and I’m incredibly proud of our facilitators in bringing joy, connection and mental well being to so many. Thank you to Linda for applying and organising this grant. I greatly appreciate what this has bought to us as a group and our community.
Again a big big Thank you to Linda as treasurer keeping all our finances in order and applying for grants that help keep us afloat when we had to close through covid lockdown and financial instability.
Thank you to Jacky for stepping in and helping with the conversion to Xero this will make life less time consuming for Linda and freeing her up to do what she is great at applying for more grants!!!
