Chicks for Charity are a group of local women who have come together to raise community awareness through uniting women from all walks of life. Chicks for Charity encourage all women to harness the power of “giving back”. Organised fundraising events inspire women to donate time, talent and money to better communities. Through their collected efforts they represent an example to younger generations; they encourage their involvement and nurture their confidence to ensure that the power of “giving back” is sustained.

The Chicks have been around for a number of years now, giving back to the local community.  For more information on the Chicks and their good deeds, check out their website, or come along to one of their fundraisers.

Golden Memories Karaoke is a not-for-profit organisation for the purpose of bringing joy, leisure, quality of life and a sense of well being to senior residents that reside in aged care centres throughout Australia.

Using music, a universal language, people of all ages and cultures can share in the interactive unity of song with a feeling of togetherness.  Golden Memories Karaoke presents a musical program with the songs of yesteryear via the format of a notebook computer connected to a projector/screen with lyrics to the songs in large font displayed across the screen helping with any memory loss.  This is further enhanced with a background of pleasing to the eye video clips.

Robert and Frances Ives began the program in 2011 after experiencing the feelings of helplessness with loved family members being diagnosed with an aggressive strain of dementia and confined to a dementia wing of an aged care centre.  From their experience, they researched the therapeutical benefits that music and singing can bring and developed the Golden Memories Karaoke program.

Knox Community Bank Group has provided Golden Memories Karaoke with Community Grants in 2012, soon after their inception and again in 2014.  Grants are awarded each year by teh bank to community organisations who are seen to be giving back to the local community.  Golden Memories Karaoke is one of those groups.
