SIMON HOME proud to have assisted Karuna who support the terminally ill

 

KARUNA DEDICATED HOLISTIC SUPPORT

Karuna has for 23 years been enhancing the quality of life of terminally ill clients, their carers and families. We were glad to support this year's Christmas market, which was deemed the best ever, raising attention and funds for their cause.

This year's Karuna Christmas Market was held on 20th November at Karuna House.

Their volunteer ladies had been busy all year creating beautiful handmade gifts, decorations, traditional crafs, puddings, jams, buscuits and festive fair, as well as Children's clothing, for the Christmas Market.

A raffle was also organised with items donated by Karuna supporters but the one thing they were still missing was a big wheel barrow to hold the items to make up the raffle prize.  We discovered this dilema via one of our Toowoomba staff members  and were happy to help out.  Our Ipswich branch donated the wheel barrow, as it was closer to Karuna's HQ.

We received a lovely email from Fundraising Manager Tess Wilbe today, which we'd like to share:

KARUNA XMAS MARKET

"Just wanted to say another big thank you for helping with our Xmas Market raffle. The markets were our most successful yet and so was our raffle!  We were getting quite anxious about getting a wheel barrow and your donation was wonderful.

I have attached a few photos for you.

Warm regards

Tess Wilbe
