What people are saying:

Hi, I always manage to bring something from an article in the magazine into the conversation with the customers no matter what I am selling in the Showroom. … Summer Edition No.158, I do think it’s one of the best (or maybe I was just missing it so much – lol).
I can look forward to a read with a cup of tea tonight. Looking forward to the next edition and happy to promote.

Cheers, Karen DécoR Stone, Highbury Road, Burwood – via email Dec 2020

I’ve got quite a bit of work from the Burwood Bulletin over the years and I think I’ve had my little ad running for about 15 years and had lots of jobs and met some lovely people. My main motivation is to give the BB some extra much needed income to help save this great newsletter/magazine.

Where can one find copies of this wondrous magazine?

I … would like to know where I can regularly obtain a copy of this publication. Is there a list available of the community centres or other venues that are part of the distribution chain? I am happy to chase it, but have no idea where to start.

Thank you. Judy, via email 2 Nov 2020


Run Against Violence

Australian runners and walkers alike are invited to participate in the 4th annual Run Against Violence Virtual Team Challenge, a nationwide movement to raise awareness of family violence by running 1300 kilometres. There are many local runners/teams participating, including Richmond and Surrey Hills.

Registrations Open: Monday 28 June 2021
Challenge Starts: Anytime Monday 30 August 2021
Challenge Finishes: Midnight Friday 17 September 2021

In 2020 the challenge raised $120k and this year, the goal is $180k.

During the challenge, teams of up to 20 people will walk or run in their local area. Daily uploads of their distances onto an online tracker keeps them in the competition. To be successful, the team is required to cover 1300km in the 19 days of the challenge.

Run Against Violence recently joined forces with the National Association for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (NAPCAN) to help ensure that every teenager in Australia has the opportunity to learn about healthy relationships. The program is delivered in safe interactive environments by highly trained facilitators from outside of the school – including sexual assault workers, domestic violence professionals, youth and social workers or Police.
