What a delight to be convening Appin Hall’s first AGM in Victoria, having sailed across Bass Strait to relocate the Foundations operations in a central location to invite children and their families Australia-wide. Thank You to all our friends and volunteers who assisted us with this recent leg of the journey. The Foundation is now registered in Victoria and is in a great position to expand its development.
We have been overwhelmed by the hospitality, support and generosity of the Latrobe Valley community who have welcomed us with open arms. In particular, ‘In2 Project Management’ (Neil Betts & Chris Allford) who have become business associates of Appin Hall by demonstrating how the locals get the job done in The Valley. Frank Bezzina (Koko the Clown) has been amazing with his support and willingness to create introductions that have since opened doors to get things underway. Also, Colin Gooding (First National Real Estate) for guiding us into a perfect abode that we might feel secure in the new territory. There are numerous Latrobe Valley stakeholders and Gippsland businesses stepping up to assist at this early time of development.
There is an urgency for Appin Hall to open its doors due to the fact that many families are doing it tough and we are seeing many more children suffering chronic disease. The first invitation will be given to two Tasmanian families followed by Gippslands Latrobe Valley families who need our support.
Appin Hall heals the hearts and minds of children;
- It fosters imagination and hope
- Elevates the soul of every child
- Ignites a love and appreciation for Nature
- Fires up a childs’ curiosity about Life
To our donors, volunteers and friends who have given financially and in-kind to Appin Hall, your generosity and loyalty is very much appreciated and allows the next stage of the journey to be completed.
Appin Hall Children's Foundation is a voluntary organisation which can only survive with very important and well appreciated donations. Please donate to Appin Hall and make a difference in a little one's life who needs it in difficult physical and emotional times for the whole family.
Your generosity is truly appreciated.
Wishing you all a joy-filled Christmas … MAGGIE & RONNIE BURNS
