60th anniversary

Elspeth Campbell, the longest-serving staff member, and Norma Christopher, the longest serving volunteer, cut the cake

The Helen Keller Society celebrated its 60th anniversary in aged care last month. Awards were given to long-serving staff members, volunteers, service providers, committee members and residents who had supported the society for more than 20 years. The society’s Low Vision Community Services staff members, who have run this department since 1998, were also honoured with awards at the anniversary. “The society thanks all who were involved in making this a very special and memorable event,” said Glenis du Toit, public relations and media liaison at the Helen Keller Society.
