A recent ‘ladies day out’ hosted on deer farm 4km out of Murchison was a “Great success” says Jude Alfeld, one of the four key organisers. The R18 event was open to all women, not just farmers, and aimed at getting women together for a day to themselves while also raising funds for Nelson Tasman Hospice. “We wanted women to come and enjoy themselves, have a break from the kids and the chores” Jude adds.
Around 100 ladies attended the day and together they raised $3,500 for Nelson Tasman Hospice. The women enjoyed a shared lunch, a clothing fashion parade and exploring locally made things such as skin care and honey.
This is the second year that the event has been held and the team organising it are confident there will be a third event next year in February 2024. “We already have some ideas for next year, we want to continue growing this and I am excited to see what next year brings.” Smiles Jude “It is so uplifting to see all the women come together and it’s encouraging to have already received many comments from those who enjoyed the day and thought it was wonderful. It was a great day, with great women, a lot of fun and for a good cause.”
