• Volunteers support the ‘Old School’ at Resthaven Port Elliot

    Murray Bridge CS volunteer Sandy BergSandy Berg has only recently started volunteering with Resthaven, and she is already making a great impression.

    Sandy supports the wellness groups held through Resthaven Murray Bridge, Hills & Fleurieu Community Services, at the Port Elliot ‘Old School’.

    Occupational Therapist, Caroline Tenny, says, ‘We are delighted to have Sandy assisting us at the Old School.’

    ‘She has slotted in perfectly.’

    ‘Clients and staff alike agree that, although she only started recently, it’s like she’s always been with us!’

    Sandy also volunteers at Resthaven Port Elliot, where her mum lives.

    Caroline says, ‘Thank you, Sandy, for all you do!’

    Each year in May, Resthaven celebrates volunteers during National Volunteer Week with High Teas across all areas. This year, the High Tea theme is ‘Threads of Life—a yarn starts with “Hello”’.

    Resthaven volunteers from across the Murray Bridge, Hills & Fleurieu will celebrate at Resthaven Murray Bridge on Friday 12 May at 2pm. Resthaven Port Elliot volunteers celebrated on Thursday 11 May.
