Butterflies find a new home

SUNSHINE Butterflies, a charitable organisation that provides services and support to people with a disability and their families on the Coast, has a new home.

It can now be found in Bartlett St, Noosaville, where the many services and programs will be delivered from, including a new early intervention Baby Bridges program.

There is also a dynamic art program for those with additional needs and disabilities.

Founder Leanne Walsh, said the office had been made available by Carl Sharp and Melissa Isles from QClad, who had generously supported the charity and its services for some time.

"We are now wishing to create and provide a creative and interesting art space and therapy room from our new abode for our members by asking local businesses to donate items and resources to help make our new place of residency a place to be visually enjoyed by everyone of all ages and abilities," she said.

Types of items and services needed are art supplies, toys, games and books, sewing items and material, decorating materials, rugs, mats and cushions, tables, chairs and storage, baskets, mirrors or anything interesting as well as the services of an artist, plumber, electrician and handyman.

If you want to help Sunshine Butterflies and require any further details or information, Ms Leanne Walsh on 0416 272 123.

Sunshine Butterflies is a not-for-profit organisation and registered charity that strives to improve all areas of the lives of children with disabilities through a range of programs.
