|INDIAN BAZAAR AT CHAKRA
What an amazing experience New Hope supporters and friends enjoyed in November at Chakra Restaurant, one of Perth’s most applauded Indian restaurants.
We were told to expect fresh, traditional home-style Indian cuisine including an array of canapes, curries, and dessert – and we weren’t disappointed! Along with cocktails and mocktails, guests enjoyed a raffle and a lively auction with generously donated prizes including a $1000 stay at Hamelin Bay Seaclusion and a Park Lane jewellery set.
There was also the opportunity to purchase a selection of handmade Indian crafts – including traditional printed cotton tablecloths, throws and bags – as well as stunning donated antique jewellery.
Thank you to our supporters for attending this event, we raised over $3000 which was sent directly to New Hope India.
VALENTINE’S DAY LOVE BOAT FUNDRAISER
Thank you to everyone who joined us on Perth’s iconic Paddle Steamer, Decoy, in February for a slow cruise down the Swan River to raise much needed funds for New Hope India.
On board we sold Indian jewellery, crafts, bags and copies of Maggie Sister’s book, Sister, Sister (also available here). We also held a raffle and sold delicious homemade fudge.
New Hope supporters helped us raise nearly $5000. We were so thankful and excited to send this money directly to New Hope India. The money raised from the jewellery sales is funding the operation and maintenance of Jean’s Tea House.
Friends of New Hope Australia is directed by a committee of dedicated and passionate volunteers. The committee recognises the many people we reach out to for donations, those who contribute in various practical ways, supporters of our events, and those who fundraise for New Hope, such as Flow with Nicole in Broome.
