It was a fun day frolicking on Pambula Beach for Colleen, Taylor and Joy, supported by Chris and Heather. Who knew Taylor was a mermaid?

Check out Tulgeen’s new all terrain wheelchair – perfect for beach and bush outings.  This was as a result of a grant from the Surf Life Saving Clubs, Australia.

Many thanks to Peter Bootes from Pambula Surf Life Saving Club  who made today’s outing possible,

How cool does Colleen look floating in the waves in the chair?

The chair is available for anyone in our community to borrow and use so let your friends and family know and get in touch with Tulgeen by contacting Karen Machan on 6499 084 or
