Holiday Closures at Tweddle

Holiday Closures at Tweddle

By Kerrie Gottliebsen

Tweddle will be closing for business at midday on Thursday the 19th of December and reopen on Monday January 6th. It’s been a busy year and we have many people to thank.

In 2019 Tweddle supported over 4,000 mums, dads, babies and toddlers from around Victoria, but we couldn’t have done it without the help of many generous donors, volunteers and partners.

We are grateful to the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) for their continued support as this allows us to improve outcomes for vulnerable families through our Residential, PASDS, HoPES and Day Stay programs.

We are thankful to the Collier Charitable Fund, The William Angliss Charitable Fund, Helen Macpherson Smith Trust, Social Ventures Australia, Wynhdam City Council, Phyllis Connor Memorial Trust (EQT), State Trustees Australia Foundation, The Rotary Club of Footscray, The Inger Rice Foundation, Romy Katz, The Lions Club of Footscray, DreamWalk App Developers, Lifebuoy Video and other donors big and small.

We would also like to thank our volunteer concierge Carol MacDonald and Friends of Tweddle’s Jo Norton for their time and kindness. Knit One Give One (KOGO), Fay Stankovich, Brenda Cottee and Rhonda Doyle continue to provide Tweddle babies and toddlers with gorgeous knitted and quilted items for families to take home and love.

We also thank the mums, dads and health professionals who place their trust in Tweddle to care for their families in difficult times. We are privileged to keep families safe and to build the attachment relationships that will strengthen families for life.

Tweddle’s MyTime groups align with school terms so will commence in the first week of February.
