I just had to tell you about this event, Design for Life, which any interiors addict will surely love, but which is also raising funds for a great charity, Mummy’s Wish, which offers practical support to Australian mums and their families when they’re diagnosed with cancer. As someone who lost my mum to cancer when I was three, this cause is obviously very close to my heart. And the event has some top names on board and is going to be amazing, so you’d better book your ticket for 31 May right now!
Mummy’s Wish is based in Queensland and has helped thousands of families there. They have had many requests for help by Sydney hospitals for mums with all types of cancer, but have been unable to assist as they don’t have support people in NSW. Their work is really practical. They help with housework, financial assistance, memory making for terminal mums, nutritious family meal provision, childcare, tutoring for little ones struggling to maintain focus on their studies due to their mum’s illness and free hire of iPads during hospital stays for Skype sessions between mums and their families.
How amazing and important is all that?
Help raise money to provide these services in Sydney by attending the ultimate interiors-loving girls day out, Design for Life, at The School in Rosebery on 31 May. Hear The Block’s Darren Palmer talk about how he got into interior design and some of the trends that are coming, and Barry Du Bois from The Living Room will to help you understand the five steps to planning a great room and show some examples. Stylist Megan Morton will be doing a styling session and Good Day Girl will show you how to dress confidently. You’ll also enjoy champagne and nibbles, all for $125 per ticket.
2-5pm on Saturday 31 May 2014. Places are limited. Buy tickets.
