From the sale of the cards in the spinner by the door, and donations, we matched dollar for dollar and we’re able to send almost $1,000.00 to the L.I.F.E. (LUCY IRVINE FOUNDATION EUROPE) rescue and rehabilitation centre for abused and abandoned animals in Bulgaria. They receive no funding from the government or any private businesses, strictly surviving on donations from people. We are proud to be able to help them with pet food and any surgical needs.

Sad News about Steve

  
For those who have not yet heard:

It is with deepest sadness and most profound heartache that we write this post.
After a long and difficult health journey, our beloved Steve (Husband, Father, Brother, Friend, and so much more) passed so peacefully at 9:38pm on January 29th, 2023.

He spent his last hours surrounded by those who cherished him most. We reminisced our most fond memories together and were able to share in the heavy emotions we all felt.

We respectfully ask for no flowers at this time. PLEASE donate to:https://www.lucyirvinefoundationeurope.org/support-us/donate 
These people do amazing work.

A celebration of Steve’s life will be held at 2pm on February 11th, 2023, at Oaklands Bible Chapel, 2736 Fernwood Road, Victoria. Please bring your memories.
