THIS year Currajong Disability Services celebrates its Silver 25th anniversary and we couldn’t be more excited. From our humble beginnings in 1993 (yes David Parker was here then as well) through to where we are today, Currajong has a rich history which all current and former staff and clients should be very proud of.
We have changed logos, merged with Westview, added more residences, attracted more clients and employed extra staff. As a result, we have become a registered charity with a significant turnover and we continue to go from strength to strength. Most importantly, we have provided a life with opportunities for our clients and continue to do so.
Now 25 years later we are looking at commemorating our anniversary with a range of activities between now and Christmas. Already there have been a number of great ideas tossed around and we want to hear from you! Already we have discussed an Open Day, markets, concerts, CDS themed calendars, client cookbooks or photo books and fundraising events and that’s just the start of it!
We want to hear from everyone from clients and their families to staff and board members so we can make this year and our 25 year anniversary the best and biggest event ever! Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
