Community member lends a hand
CATHY talks about her neighbour Sandra Pereira (Tell Us Your Story winner):
“Sandra always has a smile on her face. She sees solutions where others see problems. Sandra will do anything to support or assist her fellow residents in her small community; running to the shops for them when they are sick or driving them to the hospital.
Sandra has been instrumental in bringing to life two very important projects in her community. Firstly, she is a very active and influential participant in the Young At Heart community group in her housing complex. The group meets monthly to discuss and organise community issues and events. It has transformed the attitude of the residents, who now have an active and positive focus on community events and projects.
And Sandra’s vision and determination has been essential in the creation of a fantastic community garden.
She is an amazing example of a caring neighbour and how to build stronger neighbourhoods.”
