National Sorry Day Breakfast – Orleigh Park

May 27 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 pm

Link-Up (Qld) will host our Annual Sorry Day breakfast at Orleigh Park, West End commencing at 8:00am on Friday, 27th May 2022. The program includes acknowledgement of country by Deadly Kids, cultural performances, poetry, musical performances, laying of wreath and cake cutting.

On this site stood the Aboriginal Girls Home ‘Cranbrook House’ a receiving depot for Aboriginal girls to work as domestics.  We remember the women in the home and commemorate Sorry Day each year at this site.  There are many people who are descendants of the women who were in the home and Link-Up (Qld) continually identifies descendants to be included in our Sorry Day event.

A descendant and former guest speaker, Dr Valerie Coombs whose Grandmother along with her young daughter Mable were held at Cranbrook Place Aboriginal Girls Home, described during her speech how life was during their stay and how Mable was taken away from her mother never to be seen again.

Micah Projects will support the annual event by cooking up a hot breakfast for all to enjoy.
