“My husband and myself would like to say a big thank you to you and all the caring staff who took so much care of us during our trip. We had such a lovely bus to travel in and a yummy morning tea on the way to Bunbury for our delicious lunch. When we got to our hotel in Margaret River I couldn’t believe the spacious rooms clean rooms we had. The two nights we spent there were just wonderful. It was my husband’s first overnight trip with the group and he was so impressed. On the day we were returning the 25th was his 80th birthday, and with the fun and excitement we had he felt like he was only 60 years old. We’ve been married for 48 years and this was the bestest birthday he’s had with all the careers and his friends. He was so surprised when you brought out his birthday cake he just couldn’t believe it, his new-found family celebrating his big birthday. The journey back was full of singing along and jokes and a little sadness that our trip had come to an end for now. Once again we would like to say thank you and God Bless all of you.”
“Just sending you a quick email to let you know Mum and Dad had such a great time down south, it was just what they needed, there was lots of laughs and memories made, they wish it was longer! A big thank you to you and all your amazing staff who look after them and make sure they are all taken good care of. The Centre has been a blessing and something for them to look forward to. I know they’re already looking forward to the next trip away”.
