June 2017 - Donation to Friends
Commonwealth Bank, Toorak Branch, have very generously donated an amount of $1000 to the Melbourne Friends as part of their support for community cultural groups. They have asked that the money go towards the refurbishment of the Visitor Centre
Branch Manager Ruby told us that when she first arrived in Australia, and in Melbourne, she spent a great deal of time in the Melbourne Gardens. We are very grateful to Ruby Farakos and her team for supporting us, and hence the Gardens, in this way.
