Just in time for Christmas, Endeavour Foundation’s Learning and Lifestyle in Stanthorpe has received a significant makeover thanks to a grant.
The Queensland Government Gambling Community Benefit Fund Grant provided $35,000 for major refurbishments.
A further $28,500 was provided by Endeavour Foundation, to cover the cost of upgraded flooring, a new kitchen and kitchenette, and a building extension to include the outside toilets.
Service users, staff and stakeholders joined in Endeavour Foundation’s 60th anniversary celebrations and dedication ceremony on December 2, putting the newly renovated building to good use.
State Government Member for Southern Downs, Lawrence Springborg MP joined the celebrations, along with service users, local councillors, former and current staff, volunteers, supporters and family members from far afield.
Acting Area Manager Disability Services Tanya Wenham said the generosity of both the Gambling Community Benefit Fund and Endeavour Foundation donors had vastly improved the Learning and Lifestyle centre, assisting people with a disability.
“The kitchen will be used as a part of the activities at Stanthorpe Learning and Lifestyle,” she said.
“The new facilities will also be available for hire, and this is now a great place for training programs, community meetings and functions,” Ms Wenham said.
Staff and service users are thrilled with the renovations, especially because the pathway between the main building and the toilets was previously known as ‘hurricane alley’ with wind gusting through the passage at high speeds.
The Learning and Lifestyle provides opportunities for people with a disability to enhance their independence, confidence, self-esteem, interaction skills and life choices.
Endeavour Foundation provides accommodation, education, training, vocational and lifestyle opportunities for more than 3,350 people with a disability across Queensland and New South Wales.
