We are delighted to introduce you to Trinsa Lewis - our very first employee! Her appointment was made possible thanks to a generous grant from The R E Ross Trust.
The Buninyong mother-of-three has been volunteering with Eureka Mums since April 2014.
As Operations Manager, Trinsa will supervise the day-to-day management and operation of our warehouse in Sebastopol.
“There are so many families in Ballarat that are struggling to provide the basics for their children.” Trinsa said. “It is an amazing feeling knowing we can lighten the load for them by providing the gift of clothes, cots, prams, car restraints, and all the essentials they need to keep their children safe.”
“I love the opportunities Eureka Mums provides for our volunteers,” she said. “For me, it was a way to get out of the house when I found myself at home with a young child and not much of a social connection as all my friends were working. It gave me a place to meet other people and do something for our community.”
“I am honoured to be able to provide this environment for others and I hope they benefit from it as much as I have.”
You can contact Trinsa directly by email email@example.com.
The warehouse at the corner of Spencer Street and Gray street (Enter via Spencer Street where the red Roller door is) is open to the public to drop of donations at the following times:
Tuesday and Thursday every week between 11 am and 12 midday
1st and 3rd Saturday of the month between 11 am and 12 midday
We look forward to seeing you at one of our collection times soon.

What your donations add up to
We would not be able to support the Ballarat community without your support - whether that is donations of goods, money or your time.
As you can see from this diagram we have assisted 724 Ballarat families in the past nine months.
There is no government funding for nursery essentials like prams and clothing; we are entirely reliant on you and your support to ensure that no baby goes without.
We will touch soon to let you know how you can help us keep more babies safe - keep an eye on your inbox!
Thank you for your continued support as we look forward to helping many more Ballarat families in the months to come.
Cheers from all the mums at Eureka Mums
