Official Opening of The Doris Beaumont Lowndes House.
Saturday 11th October saw the culmination of 20 years work by Nardy House. The supported accommodation building for people with profound physical disabilities was officially opened. The ribbon was cut by the President of NSW Ryder Cheshire Foundation, Christine Hannan and Nardy House representatives Denise Redmond (CEO ) and Betsy Hilton (the Hilton family donated the five acre Nardy House site).
The Nardy House building programme got to the framing stage through fund raising efforts and a local donation from a Quaama family ( Alan and Vicki Johnstone) enabled the group to roof the facility. Ryder Cheshire provided a very large donation to Nardy House to complete the building. A further donation by Alethe Clezy purchased the therapy bath.
A big day for Nardy House and a great day for service provision for people with profound physical disabilities.
Carers now see a future for the people they care for when their caring role is no longer a viable option.
