What a bloody fantastic community we live in…

IMG_4034We were thrilled to attend Community Living and Respite’s (CLRS) 10th annual fundraising dinner on Tuesday night at Moama Bowling Club.

It was an honour to support the event with more than 300 other locals who raised a whopping $80,000 for this incredible organisation doing life-changing work across the Echuca Moama region. This mammoth fundraising effort is testament to the work CLRS does and to the generosity of the community we live in.

CLRS has been providing much-needed services for people with disability, carers and the aged since 1979 and continually strives to make a lasting difference in our community.

We recently shared CLRS’s story in the Riverboats Music Festival program (as the official community partner) and highlighted many of their initiatives including the recently announced Opening Doors Project.

The Opening Doors Project will provide a mix of accommodation catering for clients who require assistance 24 hours a day or those who can use assistive technology to live a more independent life. This type of technology can be used through iPads and phones to operate appliances, heating and cooling, turn on taps and watering systems and open doors.

I’m among a group of locals identified as an ambassador for this project and would love you to support CLRS by visiting https://www.clrs.org.au/openingdoors to find out more.

Not surprisingly our #spreadingthegoodstuff post for this week is dedicated to CLRS for an inspiring night where community and business came together to give generously to those who need our support.

What a bloody fantastic community we live in!
