And the winner is....
Congratulations to Sue Leaper - major prize winner in Able Australia Raffle #70.
As first prize winner, Sue had the choice of a new car or a holiday to the value of $25,000 and opted for a brand new Holden Cruze Hatch Turbo.
A very excited Sue (left) was presented with her new wheels this week by Able Australia Fundraising Coordinator, Terri Spring (far right) and Joeline French from Doncaster Holden.
“Thank you and I wish Able Australia much success in the future,” said Sue.
“I certainly intend to continue my support.”
Discovering the Blue Lotus
More than 30 people with deafblindness and support staff ventured to Yarra Junction in Victoria earlier this month to visit the Blue Lotus Water Gardens.
During the visit, the group was given a presentation on water lilies which featured a ‘hands-on’ feel of the plants and an explanation of how they are grown and harvested. Everyone then walked around the beautiful ponds and lake to enjoy the amazing colours and lily varieties.
The day concluded with lunch under the gazebo and a chat over a coffee latte.
Many thanks to Victoria from VicDeaf who came along with the VicDeaf bus and helped interpret throughout the day. Thanks also to our ever-generous team of volunteers who once again gave up their time to ensure the people we support enjoyed a fun day out.
