Allan Kennedy Helping Hands Program Launch

Launching the the Allan Kennedy Helping Hands Program was a particularly special occasion.
It is named after one of the hardest working volunteers on the Southside and is designed to help socially isolated residents on the Southside

Allan Kennedy volunteered with the Annerley Friendship Club for over 15 years. Often described by Club members as the “go to” person, Allan was someone who was the first to arrive at the Friendship Club and last to leave.  

It took someone like Allan to put in the personal love, care, attention and dedication to be there. To turn up and be a friend, helping those who are most isolated in the community.

Earlier this year I hosted the Griffith Australia Day Awards. Allan was appropriately recognised for his service to the Southside Community, but sadly passed away before he could receive his Award. In recognition of his work with socially isolated residents, I decided that we should capture, make real and expand the work he did.

Through my office we are regularly visiting residents in the community who are socially isolated. Not only will our staff provide morning tea, but will also deliver a care package. This care package is supported by local businesses and includes the local paper, tea, coffee and easy to make meals.

We also include stamps and writing tools so these residents have another way of connecting with their families and friends if they can’t leave the home.

The whole idea is to take Allan’s idea and grow it across the community. I hope others follow this model which recognises the spirit of Allan Kennedy in the community as well.

  30. This is really showing that Audi is trying to penetrate the market and trying to work around the ridiculous customs duties so the car becomes somewhat affordable.
    There is absolutely no doubt that these mid sized saloon are way ahead the build quality of the local Civics.

    I've worked on and performance tuned many Audi's from the 1.2 TFSI's to RS6's. They are build to good standards and last.

    In the UK you will still see many Audi's from 1997-2005 still running strong with huge miles. The interiors are robust and wear well. Bigg Boss 11 The paint is good. Very little goes wrong with them. They are built to last and the styling is timeless.

    Anything to bring the prices down, be it make the car a little less on features is a welcome move from Audi. Great marketing strategy.

    I really hope Audi pushes for lower custom duties. Happy new year 2018 It's a huge group (VAG) and should have the ability to use it's financial muscle to do something.
