This is such a special story Brendon - thank you for sharing! I wonder how she can feel she is giving back too? It is obviously really important to her to feel she is helping others, in any small way.

What a great story of people coming together in their community.

Richard Holmes 11 months ago

That brought a tear to my eye. The work you guys are doing is brilliant. Sometimes its just a case of reminding each other of what community its there for.

I can't believe the energy Morris had, I certainly couldn't have put on a show like his, a great entertainer.
