Mingaletta Aunties 'spread happiness and joy'

Sisters Together, a program founded by Mingaletta Aunties, is designed to look after not only themselves and other Aboriginal Aunties throughout the Peninsula, but also many other members of the community.

Aunty Elaine Chapman has been knitting happy hats to give to people who are in need of joy during these challenging times.

Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch has been one of the many people to receive some happy hats.

"Aunty Elaine Chapman has been knitting happy hats to give away to people who need some happiness during the challenging times of lockdown," said Ms Tesch.

"As soon as Aunty Robyn Reid delivered some happy hats to me yesterday, I put two of them in the post to send to some of my parliamentary colleagues in the hard lockdown areas of Western Sydney to give out in their community - who are really going through tough times."

While NSW is in lockdown together, there are many communities in particular feeling the full force of Covid-19 and struggling to find ways to connect, Ms Tesch said.

"People like Aunty Elaine and Aunty Robyn are a fabulous reminder of how simple acts of kindness can bring our communities together during these challenging times."

"Both Mingaletta Aunties should be commended for using their time and skills to produce hats that spread so much happiness and joy."

"I am so incredibly proud of our locals who continue to think of others and it is heart-warming to hear these positive stories during this time."
