What Our Donors Over the World Are Saying

My children are 6 and 8 and love love going to Kinglake Ranges blue light discos !!  I think they are a great event and feel my children are safe and well looked after with all the volunteers help!

Great place for the children to catch up in a safe environment. Also gives them a little independence.
