Janelle’s Miracle Junior Netball Classic ~ 2017

The 2016 Janelle’s Miracle Junior Netball Classic is the 4th annual charity netball fundraiser for the Australian Terminal Cancer Foundation. Formerly held at the old Mcdermott Ave Netball Courts, the 2016 annual netball tournament will be held for the first time at the new Netball Courts at Pinks Reserve in Kilsyth Victoria.

This charity tournament is designed to (i) Promote kids
involvement in sport, (ii) raise awareness and financial support for the Australian Terminal Cancer Foundation and (iii) honour and remember local hero Janelle Kingma Madigan, former LYVNA netball player, and the legacy she has left behind promoting health and fitness and also supporting families affected by terminal cancer.

Janelle's Miracle Junior Netball ClassicEvery player will receive a medal of participation and the winning team from each age group and section will have their name engraved on our perpetual shield.
The team that raises the most money for the Australian Terminal Cancer Foundation will win a fantastic prize for their club!
There will also be plenty of entertainment on the day including raffles, auctions, face painting, sausage sizzle, cafe and canteen, jumping castle and much more!

All registration fees and proceeds will benefit the Australian Terminal Cancer Foundation, supporting families affected by terminal cancer.

Soul Stories has been kindly asked to come along and support the day by setting up a stand full of creations/stories for all to read and of course hopefully sell a few pieces here and there. A percentage
of sales on the day will be wholeheartedly donated to this incredible and inspiring cause… Even if you’re not part of any netball teams, don’t be afraid to come on down to enjoy the heartwarming atmosphere and be a part of this special event… xt

Time: 10am ~ 4ishpm

Draché Arts Festival ~ France 2015

12092182_10153294528084482_345578169_nLook out!!!  Soul Stories will be featured in little exhibition over in France
~ my 2nd home sweet home…

Thanks to my awesome friend, graphic designer, photographer, videographer & buddy in crime ~ Gin has organised for a select number of Soul Stories prints & gift cards to be set up along side her brilliant photography prints in the Draché Arts Festival.
Draché is where Gin grew up, and where her parents are still living today ~ so l had some very ‘easy’ connections getting into this show.

While l was living & dancing in Paris (a couple of years ago), l was fortunate enough to have a few of my Soul Stories translated into French. I can not thank my wonderful friends/translators for their selfless time and help to do this ~ merci beaucoup my little froggies!!!

Over the last few weeks Gin has been busy preparing her own work, along with all of mine  ~Soul Stories  ~ Draché Exhibition sent over from Australia. So l honestly can not thank her enough. Although l think l have taught her well as she even had her parents onboard, busy with cutting, packaging, tying up and even making little wooden stands from scratch!? Extremely impressive l must say…

Will post details below and fingers crossed that we both have an amazing day this Sunday!? Would love to be a little french fly on the wall.
It will soon be my turn to take care of both our creative stalls in my little home town, for Heyfield’s ‘Food & Wine Festival’.
