Charlotte and the Cuddle Chair by Alison Topper.
Act for Kids is a charitable, not for profit organisation. All services are provided free of charge to clients, whilst some government funding is received, they rely heavily on donations and fundraising to provide services, support and healing to children who have suffered trauma.
The Cuddle Chair was created as a labour of love by staff member Belinda Thompson, her mum Shirley Esler, family and friends to raise awareness and funds for Act for Kids. During the 2016/17 school holidays the Cuddle Chair visited local libraries and a popular cafe. Young and old were able to enjoy the art piece, create a unique photo and donate to a special cause, resulting in over $1,000 being raised via a donation box.
