The lights are on at Pioneer Clubhouse Balgowlah! And what a great photo of the team, L-R: Linda Robertson, Chris Lee, Susie Morgan, Tina Jackson, Anna Josephson, Ursula Hogben, Kirsty Gold, Ann-Charlott Paduch, Harriet Cunningham and Lesley Treleaven, (and a shout out to Dof Dickinson who couldn’t be here.)

Our first Sunny and Share installation, funded by our Community Giving Fund and private donations, was launched at a lunch party at Pioneer Clubhouse.

In spite of the cold and rainy day, there was a great crowd who enjoyed yummy food, a raffle, a sale of artwork and freshly potted succulents, speeches, a cake, fairy lights, music and dancing. How lovely to see so many friends and supporters, including the Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan, Deputy Mayor Candy Bingham, CEO of One Door Mental Health, Kathi Boorman, and Bronwen Regan, chief of staff for federal MP Zali Steggall.


As always, thank you to the many people who made this possible. First, the hardworking Zero team, who have brainstormed, dreamed, come up with ideas and then made them happen. Thank you to Zali Steggall MP, Mayor Michael Regan, and the Northern Beaches Council for your support. Thank you also to Pioneer Clubhouse for embracing the idea and inviting us over, to Solarpro and Diamond Energy for their financial support, and to everyone who has installed solar through Zero Emissions Sydney North. Thank you to generous donors, including Mosman IGA and many individuals – you know who you are!  Finally, thank you to Julie Gianessini for her beautiful photos which give you just a taste of the fun we had.
