Maddie’s Mates Trivia Night

  • Posted on July 20, 2014 at 3:18 am

The annual Maddie’s Mates Trivia Night is on again, 23 August at 6.30pm. Details are in the flyer below.

The theme for the night is music so come in your best dressed music themed outfit.  If you’re name isn’t Glenn A. Baker and you’re not a music guru that’s ok as the questions will cover all sorts of topics and not just music.

For the die-hard rugby fans we will open the doors at 5.30 and have a TV at the back of the hall so you don’t miss out on the Wallabies beating the All Blacks at Eden Park for the first time since 1986!


Teenage Adventure Camp

During the school holidays at the end of term 2 Maddie was fortunate enough to be able to go on a teenagers camp for a week. Teenage Adventure Camps QLD is a charity run by volunteers and provides teenagers a range of opportunities and experiences to challenge themselves. Maddie got to ride over the Gold Coast in a helicopter, had dinner and a show at Jupiters Casino where she got to go backstage and meet the stars, played indoor soccer, went crabbing/fishing, took a ride in a Ford AC Cobra as well as having a few late nights and making lots of new friends and catching up with .  As you’d expect she came back exhausted but with lots of stories, she really had a very full week.

A big thankyou goes out to all the volunteer carers who looked after Maddie so well and all the extremely generous people that make this week possible. Whilst  Maddie had some physical challenges during the week she was looked after very well would not have had the opportunity to do all this without them.  Thanks to all involved.
