Women Walk the World
CWA Sydney City joined other Phillip Group members for this annual event on 29 April. Under a beautiful blue autumn sky, we met at Oatley and enjoyed a lovely walk through the local area and on to the historic bridge, all the while raising money for the work of ACWW. Even our youngest member joined in the fun before it all became a bit too much!

With special thanks
