LiveBetter’s Raquel Clarke was full of praise for the work of women in families and communities as they poured into the not-for-profit organisation’s Evans Street office in Dubbo on Thursday.
“Without women, I don’t know how the world would operate,” she said at the event marking International Women’s Day.
LiveBetter’s Ability Links program, headspace Dubbo, Dubbo Neighbourhood Centre and the Buninyong School as Community Centre organised the event that thanked, inspired and pampered participants.
About 70 women heard from guest speakers including Dubbo’s Pat Clarke who became a published author late in life.
Body and hand massages were popular among the women who Raquel Clarke said “go about their business and don’t give it a second thought”.
“The organising committee wanted to thank the women in our community,” she said. “They make a difference.”
