The money raised has been used to provide respite for carers through a variety of means including financial assistance, well-deserved breaks, medical aids and outings.

The 2017 Bowling Day was held on 16 March.  The event was a great success with over 170 participants.  Even the weather smiled on the event, with rain holding off until after play had been concluded.

Carers ACT has produced a fine video that highlights individual carer’s stories and the great partnership forged between that organisation and the Shaw Building Group.  It is available here.
