29th March – Neighbour Day

Neighbour Day 2015Neighbour Day is Australia’s annual celebration of community, bringing together the people next door, across the street or on the next farm for a beer, a barbie or just a cuppa.

Held on the last Sunday in March every year, it’s the perfect day to say thanks for being a great neighbour and for being there when I needed you most.

The actual meaning of Neighbour Day is so much more …

Neighbours are important because good relationships with others can and does change communities. Social connection also makes us feel better as it helps prevent loneliness, isolation and depression.

Neighbour Day brings together like-minded people, resources, and organisations to grow stronger, well connected communities.

Working with neighbourhoods across Australia we aim to grow this ethos beyond a single day – to every day of the year.

Responsibility for Australia’s annual celebration of community, Neighbour Day, was assumed by Relationships Australia from 1st January 2014.

21st World Forestry Day

International Day of ForestsThis global celebration of forests provides a platform to raise awareness of the importance of all types of forests and of trees outside forests.

Forests cover one third of the Earth’s land mass, performing vital functions around the world. Around 1.6 billion people – including more than 2,000 indigenous cultures – depend on forests for their livelihood.

Forests are the most biologically-diverse ecosystems on land, home to more than 80% of the terrestrial species of animals, plants and insects. They also provide shelter, jobs and security for forest-dependent communities.

They play a key role in our battle in adapting to and mitigating climate change. Forests contribute to the balance of oxygen, carbon dioxide and humidity in the air. They protect watersheds, which supply 75% of freshwater worldwide.

Yet despite all of these priceless ecological, economic, social and health benefits, global deforestation continues at an alarming rate – 13 million hectares of forest are destroyed annually. Deforestation accounts for 12 to 20 percent of the global greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change.

The theme for this year “Forests and Climate Change” highlights forest-based solutions to address climate change mitigation and adaptation, and more broadly forests and sustainable development.

21st March – Harmony Day

12th – 15th March – Colour for a Cure

Colour for a CureThis iconic event is one of Australia’s biggest fundraisers.

Between March 12-15 more than 150,000 people will get sponsored to shave or colour their hair to support Australians with blood cancer and fund research.

Today, 31 Australians will be given the devastating news that they have leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma or a related blood disorder.

That’s more than 12,000 people in 2015.

Although survival rates are improving, blood cancers like these are the third biggest cause of cancer death in Australia.

The Leukaemia Foundation receives no ongoing government funding, so supporting this event makes our Vision to Cure and Mission to Care possible.

The money your sponsors give you will go towards research, which is needed to find better treatments and cures for leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders.

Your sponsorship will also support families when they need it most, providing leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma patients with a free home-away-from-home near hospital during their treatment.

It will also mean we can transport them to appointments and provide as much practical assistance and emotional support as we can, all free of charge.

8th July – Sustainability talk


8th July – Sustainability talk – Denise Camden Council and Garbage Truck visit.

Reuse simply means using a product or package more than once to create a new, useful or creative item that saves you having to buy it. It is often something you do already at home without putting much thought into it, such as using a plastic shopping bag twice. So when you stop and think about using things more than once, the possibilities are endless. We explore sustainability and get to see a garbage truck up close.
