It's getting close to the end of the year!

Posted on 27 November, 2018 at 19:10

Firstly, we must apologise for our lack of updates on this blog page. Ann-Maria and our lovely volunteers have all been very busy with the day-to-day running of our organisation as well as looking after the many events that we both hold here on site and attend elsewhere.

We will endeavor in future to post more numerous smaller updates about what is happening here at Survivor's R Us along the lines of what we already do on our Facebook page and other social media sites, such as Twitter and Instagram.


For example, this week alone we have had several things going on:


Monday, 26th November 2018

Today we had the privilege of having Robyn Lewis in to be a guest speaker at our Butterfly Corner! She informed us about the use of ice and how damaging it is to people lives. Contact us for more information, Robyn is more than willing to speak at another Butterfly Corner.

Pictured below is Robyn Lewis with NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro during their discussion on the use of ice within Australia.




Tuesday, 27th November 2018

Everyone here at Survivor’s R Us would like to say a big thank you to Roche Group for their generous donation to our organisation as well as 10 family passes to the Hunter Valley Gardens!
