Thanks CommBank!

When our kinship care team met 15 year old “Nick” he told us about ongoing pain and discomfort in his back and neck. His carers were unable to fund the chiropractic treatment that would help him live an active life, causing stress to the entire family.
With thanks to funding from the 2018 Commonwealth Bank Centenary Grants, we were able to support him and his kinship carers to give Nick access to ongoing chiropractor appointments. Nick now reports his back and neck are feeling much better and he is so thankful for the support he has received!
It is only with additional donations that we can support families like Nicks. If you’d like to help Anchor continue our work, check out our website.

Thanks to Melbourne Museum!

Sending a huge thank you to Tim and Lachlan in the Palaeontology department at the Melbourne Museum. Our staff helped to coordinate an opportunity for a group to go behind the scenes and learn about dinosaurs, megafauna and other fossils. Thanks again for sharing your time and knowledge! You have helped create an awesome school holiday experience for some great kids!

Thank you City Life!

Our teams have been extremely busy spreading Christmas cheer over the past couple of weeks.

Thank you City Life for your ongoing support. Merry Christmas!
