Good Times for Hope House

Hope House Manager Shirley Diskon has been honoured with a community award at last weekend’s Lions Club of Batemans Bay changeover luncheon. Lions Club President Jackie Harding presented the award to Shirley in recognition of her tireless work with homeless men in our community. In addition, Lions Batemans Bay presented Hope House with a donation of $1,000 which will be used to purchase a much needed oven for the house. Shirley thanked Lions for their on-going support.

On Sunday the staff and residents of Hope House manned the BBQ at Bunnings in Batemans Bay and raised $1200 on the day. Hope House Manager Shirley Diskon has thanked the management of Hope House for the opportunity to raise much needed funds for the Mens shelter.

A number of the residents of Hope House have completed their course at Adult Ed and are now qualified for work on road maintenance sights. A number of the men have work prospects which are expected to happen over the coming weeks.
