Nowra’s new women’s refuge had a backyard and front yard makeover when 40 employees from AoN insurance arrived to take part in a community service project. Every year approximately 40 AoN workers are taken away by the company for a couple of days for a staff development workshop. The employees come from all over Australia and part of their workshop is to all volunteer on a project that will benefit a community resource. The group worked hard and managed to make a huge difference to the grounds at the refuge.
We hosted this event last year at for SAHSSI’s refuge in Nowra and the project actually won a spot for AoN Nowra globally in the community events. This resulted in a cheque being presented on the day to SAHSSI for US$5000, what a great result!
