Charity recipient for Mayor’s Carols by Candlelight revealed

GIRLS Time Out Young Women’s Support Service has been selected to receive public donations and ticket proceeds from the 2020 Mayor’s Carols by Candlelight.

Girls Time Out is a local organisation committed to responding to the needs of young mothers and women aged 12 to 25 years in the Rockhampton community by providing support for their growth and human potential.

Money raised by Carols by Candlelight will go to the organisation’s Me Myself and I program which promotes positive beginnings for young women by providing effective and life changing support in four areas: positive peer support, positive relationships, positive conversations and positive creative art.

“The Rockhampton region community has a great tradition of helping others, not only at Christmas but at any time people are in need. I am very pleased that this year we will be able to assist Girls Time Out and their Me Myself and I program,” Acting Mayor Cr Neil Fisher said.

“I understand that this program is not funded by any other source so it relies 100 per cent on donations.
