Geelong Mums Mother’s Day Lunch Tickets


The charity’s premier fundraising event raises critical funds each year. It’s the perfect excuse for attendees to get a group of friends together, dress up and throw their support behind Geelong Mums.

With a mission to ensure every child has access to a safe and nurturing environment, Geelong Mums is a much loved organisation that has been an important part of the community for over 10 years.  Striving to alleviate the burdens faced by struggling families, Geelong Mums provided critical support to more than 21,000 babies and children in 2023.

Through a large network of Maternal and Child Health Nurses and social workers across Victoria, Geelong Mums provides essential items to families in need. The generous community donates pre-loved items like prams, car seats, clothing, toys, and books. These donations are carefully cleaned, laundered, and safety-checked by a dedicated team of volunteers. Through their efforts, Geelong Mums can repurpose and redistribute these quality items to families in need.

Geelong Mums CEO Ruth Holdaway, MBE said “Geelong Mums is a community that finds joy in everything we do, and our Mother’s Day Lunches are no exception. This is a fantastic celebration that is all about having a great time with friends, colleagues and lots of wonderful mums and taking just one day to help the families in our state that are doing it tough.

“The cost of living continues to bite hard and we can clearly see an increase in requests for our help. Even the basic everyday essentials – such as nappies, formula and clothing are constantly in demand.

“I urge everyone to consider buying a ticket to the Mother’s Day lunch because your support helps us achieve our vision to share more, waste less, and ensure that every child in Victoria thrives.”
