We have supported RAW with Christmas initiatives for the RAW ladies and their children two years running, and last year with a fundraising lunch for 120 Auckland ladies at La Cigale in Parnell. Last Christmas we sourced gifts and gift vouchers from both companies and supportive Auckland families, which meant that RAW ladies and their children received gifts at Christmas. These were given out at a lunch, catered and run by the Friends of RAW. Along with these initiatives, we support RAW with items for the In Excess store and helping where we can when looking for items for the incubator homes.
Friends of RAW is made up of both homemakers and women in business. Our focus is on producing a couple of successful functions a year, meaning that the commitment is not too overwhelming for any one person. All of us on the team love our connection with the ladies from RAW and we get a great deal of pleasure seeing the growth and increased confidence in the ladies each time we see them. As a result of people shifting out of Auckland our group has shrunk by a couple. If you would like to join our team and be part of this fabulous experience, we would love to hear from you.
