The Mary’s House Walk 2017 was everything we hoped. The day dawned not too hot, not too cold, no rain in sight and together approximately 150 of us turquoise bandana bearing walkers gathered together in Bradfield Park North Sydney, to get this rather purposeful show on the road.
Much relief for the organising team!
The supporters arrived, the photographer (#FirstLightPhotography) delivered, the energy was vibrant and our favourite French construction team of Buoygues Sydney joined us to show support for our mission, which was of course to raise funds for Mary’s House.

Their descendants through the Banna Foundation are great advocates for giving back to the community and Mary’s House is a recipient of their largesse.
The Foundation is linked to its operating business, the Banna Property Group (www.banna.com.au) which owns and manages its own portfolio of commercial property, mostly smaller shopping centres.
My name is Molly and I am in Year 10 at Monte Sant' Angelo. This year I am completing my Personal Project under my chosen topic of Raising Awareness for Domestic Violence. I think it would be nice for people in my community to gain a better understanding of how real these situations can be considering how local it is.
For this project I have written my own song and created a video supporting the cause but I would like to further the use of my product and set up a fundraiser to get my school and home community involved in supporting victims of domestic violence.
