Second Chance Luncheon at Baguette

The Second Chance charity held a lovely luncheon on Friday July 20 at the Baguette Restaurant on Racecourse Road in Ascot. Second Chance raises funds to support projects to help homeless women. Their goal is to change the way society responds to homelessness by raising money in order to facilitate the provision of accommodation and services for women so there are fewer homeless women in South East Queensland. More than 100 women who would otherwise have been sleeping rough have been housed through the SCP partnership with the Brisbane Housing Company and other agencies – through the ‘bridge the gap’ program. Close to fifty women have been accommodated in Bed 14 at the Anglican Women’s Hostel, and have been provided with counselling, services, and assistance with appropriate accommodation. Luncheon attendees enjoyed a scrumptious two course offering with wine created by the talented chefs at Baguette. This successful event was organised by Margo Powell, and attendees included yours truly, Dale Spender, Megan Gore-Jones and Pia Du Pradal.
