CRISIS accommodation for women and children will be fitted out with new beds thanks to a generous donation from the Hastings Business Women’s Network (HBWN).

The money raised from the organisation’s International Women’s Day breakfast and Hastings Heroine Awards, supported by Leslie Williams MP, was donated directly to Galbann House.

Port Macquarie Hastings Domestic & Family Violence Specialist Service (HDFVSS) coordinator Gemma Morley said the donation was a testament to the committed support shown by the community for services supporting local women and children.

Leslie Williams MP said this year’s event with special guest Rosie Batty was inspirational for the 300-strong audience.
