Proceeds of the August Spring Fair will go to: The Tara Costigan Foundation
On 28 February 2015 Tara Maree Costigan was killed by her former partner with an axe as she held her five day old baby girl.
Her nine and eleven year old sons were powerless to stop it as they watched on. Tara’s eighteen year old baby sister and her boyfriend were also injured as they bravely fought off the attack.
2 women are killed in Australia each week as a result of family violence. While Tara is just one of those women, the circumstances of her death have led to her becoming a symbol of both grief and hope.
The community response and demand for change has led to the formation of a positive legacy and the establishment of the unique ‘Tara’s Angels’ caseworker service that supports victims for up to two years as they rebuild their lives and break the cycle of violence.
