Members of our Club were among 600 individuals, organisations and dignitaries who attended the official opening of Grace’s Place at Doonside on 2 February 2023.
This world first, purpose-built facility was commissioned by the Homicide Victim Support Group and provides counselling and support for family members who have been affected by homicide. Our Club participated in a working bee to help prepare Grace’s Place for its opening as well as committing funds from its 2022 Trivia Night to this worthy cause.
