MORE than 620 women from around Australia came together recently at the Sunshine Coast for a long weekend combining passion & purpose for the VIEW Clubs of Australia National Convention. VIEW stands for Voice Interests & Education of Women and is a national organisation boasting more than 15,000 members dedicated to supporting children's education charity The Smith Family. Through The Smith Family, young disadvantaged children are helped to succeed at school so they can create better futures for themselves. VIEW was established in 1960 and we now proudly sponsor more than 1380 students through the Learning for Life Programme. Four ladies from Coolangatta/Tweed VIEW Club were able to enjoy this informative convention which is held every 2 years. We were delighted to learn that in 2021 National Convention will be held in Adelaide. For more information about VIEW Clubs in your local area, go to or phone Di Lutze on 07 5590 9119.
