A NEW CAR!!

On the 16th October 2018 Murray Mallee Training Company very kindly donated a car to Shannon’s Bridge,

They have been a very generous supporter of Shannon’s Bridge for a couple of years now.

We are so honoured and grateful for our new vehicle. It is an asset to Shannons Bridge and will make a huge impact supporting everyone involved with the bridge. 

Dying to Know day

Dying to Know day

DID YOU KNOW?

  • 75% of us have not had end of life discussions

  • 60% think we don’t talk about death enough

  • Over 70% of us die in hospital though most of us would prefer to die at home

  • Very few of us die with an advance care plan (less than 10 percent)

  • The number of Australians aged 65 and over will double by 2050 increasing our need to plan while well and share our wishes with our loved ones

Art of Bereavment

Art of Bereavement

A Shannons Bridge Workshop

Shannon's Bridge recently had a small project “The Art of Bereavement” funded by the Grampians Regional Palliative Care Consortium

All over the world the importance of "Handover Bags" with their importance being explored and improved.

By group work with a qualified and dedicated Art Therapist, we hope that some of the art produced will be able to be used for special "Handover bags" that will better reflect the care of health services and aged care facilities as they say goodbye to their patients.

 

The strengthening of skills and increasing normal grief awareness is designed to increase the capacity and resilience of communities dealing with end of life care, death and bereavement.

Murray to Moyne Charity Ride

 

Murray to Moyne Charity Ride

Once again the surgeons from Ballarat OSM teamed up with Creswick Medical Centre and others to ride the 500km relay from Echuca to Port Fairy.  The event was run over two days through Quambatook and Stawell, with a rest break near Dunkeld.   

Whilst they have some serious cyclists in the group - the majority undertake the ride for healthy lifestyle and to raise awareness and funds. Shannon's Bridge are excited to be associated with this brilliant team of CRoCs.
