01 Dec Deeds, not words – a very special cause, supported by Edwin
We believe that you should eat well, drink local and do good. And if you can manage to do all three at once? Even better.
For the months of December and January, we’re offering a glass of deeds not words sparkling rosé, served with a half-dozen fresh natural oysters, for just $30 from 3pm daily, with $5 from every bottle we pour going directly to Share the Dignity.
The grapes may be fairly traditional, but the combination is refreshing: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay combine to bring you a refreshing, interesting drop.
The famous phrase “deeds not words” was adopted by Emmeline Pankhurst as the slogan of the new women’s social and political union in turn of the 20th century Britain.
After fifty years of peaceful campaigning to secure women the right to vote had brought no change to women’s rights, it was time for action; ‘deeds’ such as stone-throwing, arson, window-breaking, and parliamentary deputations eventually succeeded and still inspire action in the pursuit of gender equity to this day.
Faced with a recent epidemic of violence against women in australia, it is important to consider the deeds or actions – however large or small – each of us can take towards making the world a safer, fairer place. Less talk, more action – deeds not words.
Share the Dignity is a women’s charity making a real difference to homeless women and victims of domestic violence in Australia. Ensuring that all women are afforded the dignity so many of us take for granted, the work of Share the Dignity directly benefits women in crisis. And with a wine list that boasts a 50/50 split of male and female winemakers, it’s a cause close to our hearts.
