Thank you to so many!
We want to say a BIG thank you to all the generous businesses, individuals, organisations and volunteers that have helped us to open the doors, to the church community at Lifeway Christian Church and to the incredible volunteers that serve week in and week out and the families of Lara!
In 2017 we were so grateful to the Geelong Community Foundation for their generous grant that enabled us to get outdoor blinds for both outdoor eating and play spaces! To help us in summer 2018 we are also very grateful to the Lara District Community Bank Branch of Bendigo Bank who have become new Major Sponsors and our Key Supporters Terry and Yolande Cleary from Ray White that have provided much better air conditioning for Little Teapot! Thank you! In the winter of 2018 one of our Major Sponsors, the Lara District Community Bank, very generously donated funds to allow us to put astroturf in all the playspaces at Little Teapot! Everyone is so grateful! In 2019 The Geelong Community Foundation and the Lara District Community Bank partnered together
to help us with our Summer Cooling Project! We were able to install a shade sail, fans and improve ventilation with reconfigured outdoor blinds, we are so grateful. In 2020 the Lara District Community Bank sponsored two online groups for new mums that may have missed out on meeting other mums in Lara during COVID.
In 2021 we were so very grateful for a generous donation left to us from one of our precious volunteers Pauline Lavaars, as well as a donation from Hillview Sand that have helped us considerably during the challenging times of COVID. As well as this a recent timely anonymous donation in 2022 has helped us kickstart our Teapot Family membership drive, along with a further donation from Pellicano Creative Consulting - Public Speaking Training, we are so very grateful for these donations. In 2022 we've also started a partnership with long terms friends at The Aviary Cafe in Norlane, an incredible Social Enterprise. The Lara District Community Bank have also sponsored our Parents Groups in Terms 2 - 4 of 2022 to help us establish our memberships program, they have also gifted 10 x Teapot Family memberships to nominated families!
Lifeway Christian Church continues to support Little Teapot in many ways on top of a number of the church members volunteering at Little Teapot. The church also support us financially through letting us use the premises rent free, installing Solar Panels and through various financial donations over the years.
We thank God for all of these incredible individuals and organisations who have given generously as well as the many volunteers who serve week in and week out at Little Teapot, we couldn't serve the community as we do if it wasn't for everyone's generosity.
A BIG THANK YOU to..
