Bayswater Build Continues



The basement is taking shape...

Big Thank You!

Women's Housing Ltd would like to thank Slim Form for donating many, many, many intimate apparel items for our tenants!

Everyone needs to feel special this time of year and thanks to Slim Form our tenants can.

Christmas is all Wrapped up!

With a flurry of paper, ribbon and sticky tape some very helpful elves from Country Women's Association, Richmond Branch and Richmond Medical wrapped presents for our tenants.

The presents will be given to tenants so they can provide for their families and themselves hopefully producing smiles for Christmas.

A heartfelt thank you to all the elves!
