Back to Training
After a few weeks of long weekends, social events, volunteer expos (Hornsby Mall) and pairing buddies, we’ll be getting back into the Gig Buddies volunteer training room. We’ll be getting to know some new volunteers before they graduate as Gig Buddies volunteers.

Thanks to Woolworths for naming us Charity of the Month at their head office in Bella Vista. We will be talking to staff about the Gig Buddies project and fundraising in the foyer of their amazing headquarters next week. Two of our Gig Buddies, Simon and Dom, who work for Woolies, will also be joining us to tell their stories about Gig Buddies.
