It's amazing how many associations are or have been formed for a long time, yet we can sometimes be unaware of them and what they are about. "Aunties & Uncles" is one of those associations. The Aunties and Uncles association was pioneered in 1974 by founder of the NSW Aunties and Uncles Programme Rose White. Her vision was to build a better life for children.
In 1992 Aunties and Uncles Queensland was founded by Ann Thew although closing down for a short period in 2002 and re-opening again in 2003 under the umbrella of a special concept Lions Club. The programme is totally self-funded through the fundraising efforts of its members, through grants and donations.
The association's vision is to make a positive difference to the lives of children and offering vulnerable and socially isolated children in Queensland opportunities to shape their future and potential.

The Dressmaker is an M rated film and runs for 119 minutes. Set in the 1950s, The Dressmaker is a comedy/drama film about a glamorous young woman Tilly (played by Kate Winslet) who returns to her small home town of Dungatar in rural Australia after spending many years in Europe. She reconciles with her ailing and mentally unstable mother and her sewing machine and goes onto transforming the women of the town with her couture creations in such a way that she gets sweet revenge on those who did her wrong. Her mother sent her away from the town at age 10 as she was accused of wrongly accused of murder.
