Stories

It has been a few busy months since the idea to hold a Trivia fund raiser was put forward.
Funds going to Barwon Health Patient Transport, a very worthwhile cause and a fabulous service for people in need.
Who knows when we might need this service ourselves.
Each year, Barwon Health’s Patient Transport Service completes over 16,000 patient trips for community members to get to their important Barwon Health medical appointments including weekly dialysis and chemotherapy appointments.
This program help take the stress away and just makes their days a little easier.
Our trivia night was a fun way to raise some funds to help support this service.
There is a great need for a new bus and another car to help with the volume of transportation needed.
Apart from the evening being a very worthwhile fundraiser, it was a fabulous social evening and an amazing team effort.
