Alan Chalkley Retires after 22 Years with SRS
On Wednesday the 21st January, Alan announced his retirement, which SRS accepted with thanks and gratitude. Alan has been with SRS since 27th April 1992 and working in a program linked to SRS since 1988. Over the years Alan, also donated $20 from every pay, with an estimated contribution of $11,440 over his career. He has remained loyal to families that he has supported during the many years of service and continued to provide support outside of working hours.
We could all learn a few lessons from Alan (and some of us have!). Alan extends an invitation to his past colleagues to drop in and have a chat.
Benetook Chooks at Mildura Central
Benetook Chooks had the pleasure of having a display stand at Mildura Central on Friday the 21st February to promote SRS, Respite, Volunteering and of course, our Benetook Chooks project. The community was fantastic with their continued support for our Sponsor a Chook campaign, with everyone digging deep. Everyone loved the idea of sponsoring a chook which they get to name, and let me tell you, we have some classic names and SRS even send out an official certificate of authenticity. Kids and adults had a chance to meet 'Benny', our Benetook Chooks Mascot with plenty of selfies taken.
