At Michael Hill, we’re for love, and we want to give back to our community. It has been an especially challenging year, not least for children.

The book: Ellie-Mae’s Sparkle

Ellie-Mae’s Sparkle is a response to the challenging year that has been, and a reminder that with optimism, perseverance, and a sense of community, we can overcome difficult times.
