A Wellness Picnic for Perth Mamas
Following the popularity of our last picnic, we have decided to run another one!
In collaboration with Perth Mumma Community (formerly Babes + Picnics Perth), we will be hosting a Spring Wellness Picnic on Friday 30th November, 9:30 am – 11:30 am at the playground in Sir James Mitchell Park, South Perth. View photos of the exact location here.
Free parking is available next to the playground, as well as coffee and snacks at the nearby Boatshed Cafe.
Perth Mumma Community is a network of like-minded mummas who meet once a month for support, networking and friendships. They also love to give back! This picnic will provide an opportunity for all mums to meet like-minded, local mums in a safe, positive, uplifting and purposeful environment, while also supporting a local charity and businesses.
The event is FREE to attend but if you would like to make a donation to the chosen charity – Little Things for Tiny Tots – on the day or purchase some goodies from our featured local businesses please bring some cash.
Little Things for Tiny Tots distributes new and pre-loved essential baby items to Perth families in need. They provide a box of “little things” that assist a family to care for their baby in the first few weeks of life containing items such as clothing, blankets, nappies, wipes, toys and books. New Baby Boxes are distributed via existing support services and government agencies and boxes are not donated directly to families or individuals.
Wholehearted Family Health is a wellness hub for mums in WA who are interested in natural health and parenting. Wholehearted Family Health enables mums to find holistic and reliable health information, naturally good products and values-driven practitioners to support them in their motherhood journey.
A number of Wholehearted Businesses will be at the picnic with their products and/or chatting to mamas offering support and information about their services.
Wholehearted Family Health is thrilled to be partnering with Perth Mumma Community for this event. RSVP is appreciated here and please share with your friends!
