During February, NCNS held a valentine’s day morning tea and 2 mystery bus tours in celebration of Seniors Week. On the way back from our second Mystery bus tour, our seniors stopped off at Greencross Vets where they enjoyed a tour of the cattery. During the tour they were touched by the sad stories of the cats who were now staying at the cattery and became eager to help. Following the bus tour, the seniors, the ladies from Make Time Women’s Group and Taste of Everything Workshops for Women as well as the Cranebrook Community rallied together with NCNS Community Development Worker, Justine Reynolds and NCNS Aboriginal Community Worker, Dave Gillett to collect and make much needed items for the vet surgery and for the animals in the flood affected areas of Queensland.
JD, a student from Henry Fulton Public School and her mum have made countless trips to the Cranebrook Community Centre with bundles of old towels and sheets that they have collected for this cause. We have also been lucky enough to have a community member donate dog food and biscuits that will be passed on to the animals who need it.
Kellie, Manager of Greencross Vets at Coreen Avenue expressed that she has been “humbled by the collective community response.”
We would like to thank everyone who has been involved and for their generous donations.
Queen Sheeba the cat has given the donated goods her seal of approval.
We are excited about this wonderful partnership and future donations are in the pipeline.
