Richmond on Ballina doing swimmingly.

Rotary Club of Ballina on Richmond has been incredibly active in our local community, including leading the charge in bringing all the community clubs in the Ballina Shire to raise funds to help build Our House.

James Frizelles Charitable Foundation

To assist families in Lismore's Special Care Nursery, so that Mum is close to Bub for feeds and visits, James Frizelles Charitable Foundation has come on board to cover the complete cost for families to stay at Our House.

Sanctuary Village

Each year the Sanctuary Village in Lennox host a Christmas Spectacular and this year they also organised an Art Show for Our House. Once again they have donated the proceeds to help those who are undergoing hardship to stay at Our House. To John, to those who lit up their homes, to the great artists among you and to those who went along and enjoyed the event, thank you!

Kyogle Bowls

This year Kyogle hosted a Bowls Day which saw many people gather to play bowls, buy raffle tickets and enjoy a really terrific day at the Kyogle Bowls Club. The day’s proceeds came to Our House. Pictured is Kyogle Bowls Club President and members of the Quota Club of Kyogle who are always supportive of Our House and host a fantastic Friendship Dinner for all to attend.

Wining and Dining for Charity

This year Our House was one of the recipients of funds raised from Ballina’s Food and Wine Fair and what a wonderful event it was for residents of the Northern Rivers. Held over three days, participants enjoyed fabulous wine, food and entertainment by local exhibitors, information sessions, and cooking demonstrations. All of this added up to a great recipe for success and the Food and Wine Fair was named in the top 13 of Food and Wine Festivals around Australia.

Order Up!

The Tuesday and Thursday BBQ dinners at Our House have been amazing with many groups helping to make these evening events happen. When one guest was asked recently about what they loved about Our House, the reply was: ‘The kindness & hospitality of staff and those who come in to provide for the community BBQ dinner - absolutely amazing!!’
