Our June / July Community News is hot off the press! Read Newsletter here

We can hardly believe we are almost half way through 2018. We continue to be busy, particularly with the NDIS implementation and clients approaching their first NDIS review.

It is wonderful to see many of our clients embracing Johnno's Run this year, with many attending the Johnno's Run walk/run training sessions at Scenic Drive on Monday afternoons (4.30 pm or 5.15 pm). All are welcome to come along. Thanks to all who are participating or supporting team members.

You may like to follow the team's progress over the next couple of months - Team Members

Thank you for your continued support of Community Living & Respite Services.

Best wishes

The Annual Fundraising Dinner was a great success and Anna Meares OAM was a fantastic guest speaker. $73,500 was raised which will support the Opening Doors Project in Moama which we hope to commence later this year, if successful with outstanding grant applications.

November 2017 Celebrations

Suzanna Barry - Saturday, October 28, 2017

We had a fantastic October, with the completion of the Opening Doors Project, winning the GMCU Allianz Campaspe Business Awards and our AGM. November is set to be just as busy with a few key events:

National Recycling Week: Nov 13 – 19

We are celebrating with week- long specials at the Murray River Tea Rooms and our Number 4 Op Shop. To launch the week on Monday November 13, we have a 50% off sale at both shops, on all Op Shop items. Daily specials will be announced on social media each evening. CLRS collects around 1 tonne of product locally each week through the Recyclability Kerbside Collection. This is diverting items from landfill and promoting re-use and recycling. Now that’s an achievement to celebrate!

Community & Philanthropy Partnerships Week (#CPPWeek): Nov 20 – 26

We’re celebrating the wonderful partnerships that sustain the Murray River Tea Rooms, by rewarding all our Tea Rooms customers with a Complimentary Cup Cake week. Call in any or every day this week and receive a free Cup Cake with your purchase. We are also launching a video that highlights what can be achieved when community works together. A big thank you to everyone who donates to the Recyclability Kerbside Collection, to our volunteers, customers, staff and corporate sponsors. Your support is providing life changing opportunities for people with disability in our community. Please call in and enjoy a complimentary cup cake!

Johnno’s Run End of Year BBQ – Monday Nov 27, 5.30 pm – 7 pm at the entrance to Scenic Drive Echuca.

Come along for a walk, run or for a BBQ dinner to celebrate all that has been achieved this year. Celebrate the friendships, the fitness, the accomplishments and the personal satisfaction of helping to build the Opening Doors Project. Gold coin donation – please RSVP to events@clrs.org.au for catering purposes. Thank-you to the Echuca Lions who will be cooking the BBQ.

If you didn’t participate in Johnno’s Run this year, but are interested in finding out more, please come along. Everyone is welcome.

 


I look forward to catching up with you during November!

Kind regards
