$80,000 to our Community

$80,000 to our Community

At the Health Foundation AGM onB Sunday 8th November over $80,000 was distributed to ten community groups.

The guest speaker Snr Sergeant Tony Francis shared his experiences in building community resilience and community capacity not only in dealing with ICE and other illicit substances, but any serious challenges that might be facing our community. B His often amusing tales enlightened and entertained us all. B We and other community leaders are committed to adopting this approach and “watch this space” for more information and actions in the next few months.

Listen to the recording of this talk.

A huge thank you to all of you who so generously support the Health foundation, and this, our 15 year has been a ripper. Andrew Buchanan b Chair ABDHF]]>
