Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore) (23:01:17):

Over the weekend the Zonta club of North Sydney and the North Sydney Community Centre hosted an International Women's Day project to create breast care cushions. For those who do not know, Zonta is a leading global organisation that aims to empower women worldwide through service and advocacy, and we are fortunate to have more than 30 clubs across New South Wales. The cushions are generously donated to women in Sydney and rural hospitals around New South Wales to increase their comfort after breast cancer surgery. A team of Zonta club of North Sydney volunteers meets regularly to prepare the breast cushions, and then they are completed at the annual Sip and Stuff event, which they held on Saturday just gone. Breast care cushions are not provided by hospitals, yet they are so appreciated and welcomed, not only for their practical use but also because they are handmade and offer thoughts of care and good wishes during what is often a difficult time for breast cancer patients. Congratulations to the Zonta club of North Sydney. They set an ambitious goal of stuffing, sewing and wrapping 250 cushions for those who need them most. In my last few seconds, I wish happy birthday to Luke.
