In October 2021 our wonderful volunteer Marg Gibson once again organised a High Tea for HD. Ticket sales far exceeded previous years with 170 guests in attendance and an amazing $13000 raised with proceeds going towards educating, empowering and connecting HD Families. The event coincided with Carers Week and was proudly supported by Carers WA who sponsored tickets enabling 16 Carers to attend.
Our sincere thanks to Marg and her amazing group of friends/volunteers who worked tirelessly to ensure the event was a success. Our thanks also to guest speaker, Ros Thomas, writer, former columnist, published author and Carer's advocate, who provided the audience with a light hearted rendition of periods of her life and excerpts from her new book.
And of course our sincere thanks to the many businesses and individuals without whom the High Tea could not have eventuated:
