Today I experienced something I have never experienced before (after a football activity with my son at Point Cook Shopping Centre)



Ondrus Waste Education

It was such a lovely workshop with a very successful attendance. I attended the first session at 1 pm and the room was packed full of kids and parents. Amazing work on a successful workshop and look forward to working further with A Fitting Connection on future workshops and programs.


Fashion Consultant, Photography Stylist

Thank you very much for the opportunity to speak and for organising the Virtues of Fashion panel discussion.

I really enjoyed being part of the event.

I also thought I would pass on that I got some positive feedback from some of the audience members and from an online participant.

Looking forward to speaking at the Saturday clothes swap day this week. See you then.

Much appreciated.
