Libby Clarke – past Sir John Reid Awardee   

Dear Jo

Apologies for my tardy reply but I would like to express my gratitude for the kind invitation to join the zoom presentation recently.

All of the speakers were truly inspirational and once more I am in awe of the terrific work the Rotary Club of Melbourne do.

Please tell Marion I was so inspired by her choice of ending with Dancing Around The World with Matt Harding.  I have been recommending it to all and sundry!

Like everyone we at Very Special Kids have been severely impacted by Covid 19. Obviously we had to cancel all our camps and major activities. However I would like to share with you what we have been able to achieve with the generous donation given to us via the Sir John Reid Award:

  • 107 new families to Very Special Kids
  • 54 families supported through end-of-life care in the home, hospice or hospital
  • 7,064 virtual appointments with families
  • 26 coffee groups hosted for parents

To give you an idea, a counselling session costs us approximately $50, which means the $10,000 donated would have helped around 200 families, which is huge!

So on behalf of all at VSK a heartfelt thank you so very much!

Kind regards,

Libby Clarke
