Community Events, Partnerships and Sponsorships

We are about the doing and especially about giving back which is why we support a range of charities and non-profit organisations every year.

Here are just a few of our community events and partnerships:


Starlight Children's Foundation

“CleverPatch are a major contributor to the fun, joy and laughter in our Starlight Express Rooms. The variety of arts and crafts on offer, astound the many sick children that have access to our Starlight Express Rooms around Australia. It’s all about positive distraction and we believe sick kids have a right to be kids – and CleverPatch really do help Starlight replace the pain, fear and stress of hospitalisation with fun, joy and laughter. Thank you CleverPatch.”

- Kate Slaytor - National Partnerships Executive, Starlight Children's Foundation

Cancer Council - Australia's Biggest Morning Tea

Each year the CleverPatch team puts their making and baking skills to the test for Australia's Biggest Morning Tea. Businesses in the local area are invited to come and feast to help us raise funds for the Cancer Council.

In the last three years, we have raised over $6000 for the Cancer Council as part of this great event!

Special Children's Christmas Party - Newcastle

The CleverPatch Team has helped to spread some extra Christmas cheer at the Special Children’s Christmas Party, held at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre. A free craft station was set up by the CleverPatch team and children were invited to decorate Wooden Frames and Scratch Board Reindeer Antlers. The children had an amazing night and were very excited to wear and take home their creations!
