YWCA Queensland hosted the Old Bags Lunch at the Gips Restaurant on Sunday, 5 March. The event was held in order to assist in the development and empowerment of women. All money raised goes towards mentoring, safe transitional housing, YAbility and the launch of future programs. The event itself was a success, with donations from Julie Bishop, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, Samantha Armytage and Dame Quentin Bryce.
