Rotary Mission Beach have today donated $500 to Trudy Tschui of Mission Beach to go towards the Handbag Project. The Project is the brainchild of Trudy who started it last year as a way of supporting women in refuges. Bags full of toiletries are given to women's refuge organisations to hand out to women  from Townsville through to Cairns.
Bags, and  toiletry items to be put in bags can be left  at drop-off points till the end of April (Tully IGA, Ob la di, Julie's Beauty Spot, Hairstrand Salon & Innisfail Goodstart Early Learning).  Their are also bins in Woolies & IGA to place toiletry items into.
The bags will be given out on Mothers Day at Ronald Macdonald House, Marilyn Mayo Clinic and women's refuge centres within the area.
