This Friday community members gathered at the House to enjoy some delicious soup served with a smile, and to ask each other “Are you okay?” R U OK? Day is an Australian initiative that aims to inspire Australians to have regular, meaningful conversations to help those who may be struggling and in need of a friendly face.
Every month the Woodend Neighbourhood House hosts a Community Lunch that brings people together and strengthens community ties. The House was glowing with yellow decorations, daffodils, and wattle to mark R U OK? Day, and of course the R U OK? themed biscuits were gone in a flash.
A heartfelt thank-you goes out to the generous volunteers who make events like the Community Lunch possible for all to enjoy. We look forward to you joining us for a cuppa and a chat at the next Community Lunch on Friday 23 October at 12.30. You can always find a place of welcome at the Woodend Neighbourhood House.
