Anglican Care Auxiliary – Hunter
Operating since January 1957, Anglican Care’s Auxiliary has played a vital role in the continued growth and expansion of Anglican Care.
Known originally as The Old Folk’s Home Women’s Auxiliary, the purpose of the Auxiliary was to raise funds and to create interest in the original C A Brown facilities. Many functions have been held over the years, including cake stalls, fetes, jumble sales, garden parties and cooking demonstrations and many hundreds of thousands of dollars have been raised and donated to Anglican Care.
Moira Housden was the original President of the Auxiliary, commencing in 1959 and continuing in the role until 1973. Her work has been carried on by subsequent presidents Nan Fowell, Mollie Lean, Dorothea Clark, Edna Dalby, Joyce Perkins, Pat Korsman, Audrey Clark and current President, Beryl Brownlow.
While the role of the Anglican Care Auxiliary has changed over the years, their ongoing enthusiasm and support continues to be an integral part of Anglican Care. Without it, we would not be able to provide all those little extras that contribute to the quality of the lives of our residents and consumers.
If you are interested in joining Anglican Care’s Auxiliary, or would like to know further information about the Auxiliary’s meetings and events, please contact Beryl Brownlow on 4950 8182.
Anglican Care Auxiliary – Manning
Following Anglican Care’s amalgamation with Storm Retirement Village in 2013, setting up an Auxiliary in the Manning Region has been a high priority. George Hoad was elected to the position of President of the Manning Auxiliary in 2015 and has done a wonderful job of establishing the Auxiliary and building membership.
Their important work contributes to the quality of life of our Storm Village and Bishop Tyrrell Place residents, as well as those people living in the community who receive a home care package from Anglican Care.
If you are interested in joining Anglican Care’s Manning Auxiliary, or would like to know more about the Auxiliary’s meetings and events, please contact George Hoad on 6550 5890.
