IN AUGUST WE ADJUST...
Well, just last month I was reporting on how we survived the SE QLD lock down and how things were again tracking on nicely. The good new is for those in SE QLD this is true... For everyone south of the border this however, is not. With the QLD/NSW border bubble being removed it threw some of our routines into chaos, chaos for us to navigate and once again adjust.
This September 6th - 12th we will, again, be participating in SIP week. To raise funds and awareness for SCI and the research continually needed to help find a cure. Out team really do give a SUCK and we challenge you to join us this year and drink all your beverages through a straw for a week. Sign up and join our team by following this link.
