Carmel Hunter 

Administration Assistant

On the 20 February, the Community House farewelled Carmel Hunter. Carmel was the part-time Administrative Assistant at the House for over 8 years. She has been central in promoting the House at community and fund-raising events during this period.

Carmel has decided that it is time to take on other challenges and so she has left us for “greener pastures”. Rumours abound suggesting volunteering in Nepal or other exotic places.

The House and its clients will miss her cheerful greetings and help with their enrolments. We wish her well in these new ventures and thank her for her years of dedicated service.
