Young Mum and Baby Program Support Coordinator, Linda Robertson said she was thankful for all the donations which meant so much for the young mums.

“It was a particularly special Mother’s Day, because it was the first for all of our young mums, but it was made even more special because of the community’s generosity,” Linda said.

“It’s comforting to know that during these unprecedented times, the Bendigo community have rallied together and thought of the people in programs like Horizon House who always need compassion and kindness.”
