Shop for a Cause - Retail Therapy
Join Tina a commitment volunteer from Be Uplifted Inc on a girls day out. A day of Retail therapy. No driving and no parking worries, just relax and wander through the maze of carefully selected warehouses.


This is shopping with a cause as funds raised will provide financial support to families of cancer patients.Tina is a survivor of cancer. Superb planning means you get genuine bargains and Tina has the necessary experience. This is her story.

I have run these shopping tours for the last 9 years and this will be my 11th tour as some years I have held two. The first three I raised money for Breast Cancer Australia and then for the next four I raised funds for National Breast Cancer Foundation and the last three have been for Be Uplifted Inc. I realise how much help is needed by these families going through their breast cancer journey without any monetary support out there.

I know through my own experience where I had to have 7 months off work to have operation, chemotherapy and then radiation. As soon as I was able I started organising fundraising to give back as I realised, I was one of the lucky ones to have survived.The last thing families need when they are going through their journey is financial problems and they need to have access to support groups and through Be Uplifted Inc. we give these families all the financial support that they need to get through and recover.

Retail Therapy


For a fun twist on the same old chain stores that you find in every shopping centre, why not visit the warehouses for jewelry, bags, shoes, home ware, and gifts. Take time off shopping and relax and savour winery tastings.Morning and afternoon tea will be served outside some warehouses. Adding to your already perfect day a delicious buffet lunch will be served at the Broncos Leagues Club.

Buffet


There will be multi - draw raffles on board each coach and some auction items as well. A few games will be played adding to the fun of the day. Many regulars even a few gentlemen attend these tours as it is value for money and in support of a great cause. This tour is great opportunity to get some early Christmas shopping done at bargain prices.
