A Great Day for our Community!

We held our annual MDNSW Community Day on Saturday, 30 November, where over 100 members, staff and Board got together to catch up, have fun and celebrate the end of a big year for our community.

The day kicked off with our Annual General Meeting (AGM), where members were briefed on the highlights from the 2019-2020 period by our Chief Executive Officer, Charlotte Sangster, and our President, Anthony Ball.

Immediately following the AGM, we dived straight in to the celebrations of our Community Day, with face painting, a photo booth, a balloon artist, boccia, games and crafts all set up for kids and adults alike to enjoy. During the day, a presentation ceremony was held to acknowledge our new ‘Life Members’. This select group are special members of our community, who have significantly supported and contributed to our association over the years, helping our members to live the life they choose. Congratulations to:

  • Martin Dalrymple
  • Ian Williams
  • Associate Prof. Kristi Jones
  • Peter Debnam
  • Carolyn Campbell-McLean
  • Robert Murray
  • Rhonda Murray
  • Alastair Corbett
  • Bruce Ellison (Posthumous)
  • Percy Baptise (Posthumous)

Following the ceremony, everyone enjoyed a delicious catered lunch and time to catch up with old friends (and make some new ones!). Everyone was then greeted by a very special guest in red, with Santa arriving with a sleigh full of presents for all of the good boys and girls.


Thank you to Commonwealth Bank Australia for your ongoing support as venue host and to the staff involved for making this wonderful day possible.
