Today, I was lucky to participate in the High tea celebration of 25 years of South Port Day Links(SPDL). A wonderful and inspiring organisation that helps make life better for so many people who are elderly or disabled. Just this year, 400 members of the community have been helped by SPDL volunteers involving over 1,100 trips in cars to medical help, shopping and recreational activities.
It is important that we all work with others to strengthen services that enable older people to stay at home and to provide more relevant, accessible and affordable services to those living with disabilities. This includes the other great initiatives that connect people through gardening, exercise, or caring for pets. Above all it is always about developing strong friendships.
The latest initiative is to raise money for a new car. If you are in a position to donate (tax deductable) contact SPDL on 9646 6362 for details.
