11 Jul if you want a feel good, heart warming
Barbara dropped into our office on Wednesday on behalf of her daughter Elizabeth to present us with a cheque for $1200.00. Elizabeth celebrated her 21st Birthday in February. She had a party at her home with many friends and family. It was a Mexican-themed party and instead of presents she asked her guests to make a donation to Catherine House.
Elizabeth is studying Agricultural Science after completing all her schooli…ng at Mercedes College. In her uni break last year she travelled to World Youth Day in Poland and also made the trip to Sydney where it was held in 2008. Elizabeth is one of five children and Barbara said she had been adamant from the beginning of her birthday planning that she wanted to raise money for Catherine House. She had been aware of the work we do through her schooling at Mercedes College Adelaide, valued long-time supporters of our work. As you can see from the photos, a great party was had, and all responded positively to her request for donations.
I want to acknowledge Barbara and her family for raising such a thoughtful and compassionate young woman. Elizabeth is an inspiration, and demonstrates how easy it is to put caring for others into action. On behalf of Catherine House we sincerely thank you. Deirdre
