2015 Family Centre Appeal

Toowoomba Businesses you are invited...

Today’s children are the future of our nation and tomorrows leaders of the Toowoomba area. They are also our Regions greatest asset and are central to the future prosperity and success of our Garden City. Parenting support, playgroup participation and empowering families is therefore essential.

On behalf of the Kath Dickson Family Centre and Armstrong Auto Group it is our pleasure to invite you to participate as a Sponsor of the 2015 Family Centre Appeal. This year we are raising funds to support our very worthwhile playgroup initiative to acquire a new transportation vehicle. This vehicle will enable the delivery of the vital Playgroup and Parenting Support Program that is needed locally.

Contributing to the Family Centre Appeal offers long lasting intrinsic and extrinsic benefits. We are calling on the community conscience commercial sector to collaborate for the purpose of achieving positive outcomes for local families.

By improving resources, for example acquiring a new passenger vehicle, together we can strengthen the service and support available for Toowoomba’s families. We urge you to contact us at your earliest convenience. Click here for more information or to download a copy of the sponsorship proposal.

"Our family have used Kath Dickson Occasional Care for 10 years, with our three kids all enjoying the friendly fun atmosphere while we work. They simply love being there – it’s so much more fun than home with lots of different things to learn and do and the staff are dedicated, stable and clearly enjoy what they do."   Janet Edwards
