Our Opal Lounge Coffee Mornings have been an incredible success each week and we would like to take this opportunity to thank you all. The list is endless with the support we have received towards this event throughout the summer holidays, it has just been tremendous and we could not have done this alone. We would like to personally thank all of the following people for their efforts in making this such a success.

Thank you so very much to:
