The Treehouse Geelong

Branch Out Mini-Market

An article about the Branch Out Min-Market has appeared in the Geelong Advertiser. Here is the transcript

Autism Support Group The Treehouse is helping locals get Christmas organised early with it’s Branch Out Mini-Market.
The market, a fundraiser for the Treehouse, will be held from 11am to 2pm on October 22 at the Highton Bowls Club, with a gold coin donation for entry, while kids are free. The 20 stalls will be run by local businesses and The Treehouse will have it’s own stall.
“There will be raffles, prizes and gifts on the day as well.”
Ms Hamling said donations and fundraising allowed The Treehouse to continue it’s work. “If we can raise more money then we can do more for the kids, ” she said.
The group is run by families living with autism for families with autism.
“We offer the support of people who understand the extreme loneliness, frustration and isolation that families can face,” she said.
The group is looking for a permanent location so it can continue to support 600 to 800 families in Geelong. Email
