HIGHLIGHTS in 2017/2018
Ladies in the ARK groups have enjoyed catching up at coffee shops and some attending movies. Some ladies work and most either have children and some also grandchildren, so we have lots of wonderful stories to share. It was bought to the attention of the group by a retired nurse within the group, that mental illness affects so many in our community and we should do something to help. We decided by organizing a raffle this would raise funds which may be able to assist the Mental Health Unit at Nambour General Hospital. Wishlist was contacted along with local businesses of which we obtained prizes for a Mothers Day Raffle. The raffle was drawn on International nurses day at the hospital with Wishlist and hospital staff representatives on 11/5/18. We raised $408 and were able to purchase Gift Vouchers to present to the Mental Health Unit to buy much needed resources.
