Mornington took the opportunity to hold a charity round, with speakers raising awareness of the prevalence of family violence, and funds going to The Good Shepard organisation. The organisation supports people who are experiencing, or recovering from, family violence in the local Mornington Peninsula area. This is an incredible relevant cause, with 1 in 4 women in Australia experiencing at least one form of family violence in their lives. For more information, or to donate, please follow this link.
On a lighter note, T minus 4 weeks until Round 1!
