Brontes Bunch

Canberra Coastrek 2020

We're taking on Canberra Coastrek!

COVID has really affected the walk, which is unfortunate, as it seems that interest has waned in recent times. However, this is not the case for Bronte's Bunch - we are still keen as beans to walk in the future,

Meanwhile, please consider donating, even if you've donated previously - maybe the money you've saved in fuel from working from home, buying a coffee and/or lunch every day. 

Every donation helps and makes a significant impact to mental health and wellbeing in Australia, so thank you for your generosity.

Bronte Elouise Haskins is a beloved daughter, sister, cousin, grand daughter, friend, and loving fur baby mum of 'Chief' and 'Cav'.

Despite being a stunning, beautiful, gregarious, intelligent and funny young woman, Bronte suffered from mental health issues, and life threw her a number of curve balls, which were difficult for Bronte to overcome.

Fly free beautiful Poppy - we love and miss you; you are always in our hearts and always in our thoughts.

UPDATE ON POPPY'S BUNCH WALK.

UPDATE! I haven't had much response from people re walking for Poppy, so have decided to postpone the walk until Saturday 19th September at 12pm. We plan to walk from Moss Manor around the Cook bushland - not an onerous walk and very pretty. We will also be putting on a BBQ for those who would like to join us following the walk - it would be really lovely to catch up with people we haven't seen for a while. For address of Moss Manor, and for catering purposes, please pm me or contact me on Noi65@outlook.com if you are interested in joining us for a Spring walk in honour of Poppy and in support of Beyond Blue.
Hope to hear from you!
Janine and Peter xo

We will still walk!!

As a lot of you may know, Coastrek has been cancelled for 2020 due to wretched COVID. Despite this, all money raised will be given to Beyond Blue.
Upon discussion with a few of Bronte's Bunch members, we decided that we will have our own walk (respecting social distancing of course). This is to thank the sponsors, however, more importantly, to honour our beautiful Bronte.
I am proposing that the walk take place on either Saturday 12th or Sunday 13th September. The walk will be approximately 5 kilometres in length, and not too arduous.
Given that we will be doing this outside of Coastrek, I invite anyone who would like to walk join us ie you don't have to be a registered member of Bronte's Bunch.
Please e-mail me at Noi65@outlook.com to express your interest in walking, and with your preferred date.
I look forward to hearing from you.

So very grateful!

Today, Peter and I met with one of Bronte's very 'real' friends, who had been looking out for her for a number of years. 

We didn't really know about James, as Bronte kept him protected, however, he was clearly her saviour in times of need. James went above and beyond to support Bronte, and they often went to Bronte's special place, commonly known as the 'Shitworks' (close to the Lower Molonglo sewer works).

We met James out at Bronte's special place this afternoon, and he took us to one of Bronte's favourite places to just 'be' - it's where she went to think and have some respite from the hard life she was living.

I have so much respect and gratitude to James for being there and supporting beautiful Bronte in her times of anguish and pain. And, James has just donated $2000 to Bronte's Bunch - how wonderful.

Thank you James - our family sends you soooooo much love; Bronte will be so chuffed xoxo.

Oh my!

Update for Bronte's Bunch

Hey all

Tonight I received a $1000+ donation from an anonymous donor - I have an idea who it is, however, will respect their anonomity.

Wowsers, this is truly amazing! I have now increased what we want to achieve in our worthy compaign for mental health and to keep Bronte's legacy going.

So totally proud of our team. Please share, share and share your/our page, so we can raise more money for Beyond Blue.

Love, Janine xoxo

We are the top team!!

Hey everyone!

'Bronte's Bunch' is on top of the sponsor board - bloody brilliant!!

Please keep up the sponsorship so we can make Bronte's legacy remain alive and well.

Heartfelt thanks to all those who have donated, and thanks in advance for those who are yet to sponsor our team. No amount of sponsorship is too small - every little bit counts.

And, also let myself or Eve know if you wish to register with either 'Bronte's Bunch' or 'Bronte's Bunch 2',

Go you good things xoxo.

Thank you to our Sponsors
