Description Mandy Paterson was the first person to receive this support from the club.


Mandy is wheelchair-bound and has limited capacity to look after her house or her book-writing business. The club (through Linda French) organised for:


·     A busy-bee where a team of 11 club members turned up, team stripped the garden, fertilised, replanted, trimmed and cut, moved pots and re-potted, weeded the driveway, fixed the reticulation, fixed up pavers so that Mandy’s wheelchair could reach the letterbox, cleaned the house from top to bottom, put up a new curtain in the kitchen, fixed a light in the carport so she now can see at night when getting out of the taxi, fixed dripping taps, cleared out the storeroom, swept the back yard, and took all rubbish to the tip.

·     The air conditioner to be serviced

·     The windows to be professionally cleaned

·     A security door to be installed

·     A security flap to be installed so her two small dogs can get in and out without her having to twist and struggle to open the door each time


Other work included:

·     Completion of work on her website so she could start selling her book

·     Organisation of some radio talk backs to market the book

Marketing the book to PMH & school libraries – members in the Club have networking contacts there


Heirisson’s role and criticality to success This was purely a Club project run by individual members
Part of a strategic relationship or partnering/alliance? Not specifically


What difference will the Project/Program make?


·     Mandy was overwhelmed with the support she received.

·     Her house and garden are much better looking and more manageable.

·     Enabling Mandy to sell her book through the re-vamped web site, will give her some much-needed income to get the cleaning and gardening done on a regular basis – also changing her life and giving her independence.


Other Benefits (Include sustainability of benefits, fun to do, recognition for Heirisson) ·     The income from selling her book will make the benefits sustainable.

·     20% of the revenue from book sales go to Ronald MacDonald House.

·     The team had a great time – they all bought food and had a great morning tea, worked hard from 8 – 1 and were exhausted but happy. A strong camaraderie developed, and the new member felt very at home.

·     Significant recognition of Heirisson from Mandy, who sent a thank-you letter back to the Club.
