NEWS LEATHER HEADER

WELCOME TO THE MAY 2021 EDITION OF THE BOOTSRAPS NEWSLETTER.

HERE WE DISCUSS EVERYTHING GOING ON, UPCOMING EVENTS, WELCOMING NEW MEMBERS AND CELEBRATING OUR LOVE AND PASSION FOR EVERYTHING LEAHTER!

FROM THE CEO:

I would like to officially welcome you all to the inaugural BOOTSTRAPS newsletter. We hope to deliver regular updates and information about our centre and events.

I encourage you all to interact with us on our social media outlets or in person at our centre. This year has been extremely busy so far and it has seen us take huge steps towards our goal of expansion and upgrading our centre. We are currently sorting out our accreditations that will allow us to deliver nationally recognised VET qualifications in saddlery and leather production. We are also exploring various options to expand into a larger facility that will afford us the space for these classes. There will be more to follow regarding this in the future and if you know of anyone interested in these classes, please have them contact us.


In April, BOOTSTRAPS finished our pilot RSL QLD Partnership leather program. It was a fantastic success with many of the veterans who participated, remaining at our centre after the course concluded. It was very humbling and impressive to see the improvements made by the students over the 10 weeks. The quality of the finished products from everyone was exceptional and they should all be very proud of their efforts, as we are of them.

So, what is happening next? We are in the process of organising another barefoot bowls day, a golf day, and a gala ball at the end of the year. We have also started up the raffle ticket sales at Porters restaurant, so come on down for a lovely meal and help support us. Our 500 Club has also kicked off, with all the details found on our web page, so please spread the word.

Thank you to all our staff and supporters who

have helped to get to where we are today.

See you next month and stay safe!!!
