It all started over a cup of coffee and look where we are out now.
What an amazing result for a year most want to forget.
We hope the coffee shared in our LLF cups ignited a very important conversation. One about the statistics surrounding childhood brain cancer in Australia and how a very brave little girl is well on her way to making a difference.
A brave little girl had her birthday on the 19th September, had she survived she would have been 9 years old.
84 locations across Sydney celebrated her very special day and hosted Coffee for a Cure in her honour.
We raised an incredible $57,250 🤍🌼☕️
With thanks and a whole lot of love to our friends listed below and to you for your support.
See you next year for Alegras double digits 🧜♀️🌼🤍💫

MATILDA- the musical
When the performing arts department asked to meet earlier this year I couldn’t have imagined what would have resulted.
Postponed due to Covid and many changes made throughout the course of rehearsals to comply, the most spectacular production of Matilda was created by such special people.
Their plan had been to raise awareness and funds for the little legs foundation during the week of sold out performances.
Due to restrictions their live audiences were cut and only parents and guardians of cast and crew we able to see the show on two nights.
Marino & I were lucky enough to watch the Friday night performance.
By the selfless act of many and by the kind request of Dr Burgis, the schools principal, many opted to forfeit the refund for their purchased tickets and opted to have the money donated to us.
It is with great joy that I announce the production raised $17500 for our cause!!!
We congratulate all involved in this production, the crew of course and the cast who brought each character to life. Such brilliance in their performances. So proud to be a part of this school community.
Forever grateful to you all 🤍🌼🎬
