McCallum's 2017 Golf day
McCallum is aiming to send its largest contingent of athletes ever to the 2017 Tri-State Games in Horsham. In order to do so, we need to raise funds to cover some (or all) of the costs associated with getting our team there. So, we're going to play golf... and raise valuable funds along the way!
If you're a weekend hacker, a scratch golfer or an "Adam Scott wannabe", it doesn't matter - come along in teams of 4 and have a really enjoyable day of golf, refreshments and prizes. The day is about having fun and helping ease the financial burden on clients, their carers and families.
McCallum's Medal Heist!
Months of preparation and anticipation has culminated in another extremely successful Tri-State Games by the St Arnaud All-Stars, which was held in Horsham from Sunday 6 November until Saturday 12 November.
Medals were won and records were broken as over 300 athletes and 150 support coaches and carers took part in events such as lawn bowls, cricket, swimming, walking across the pool, ten pin bowling, carpet bowls, track and field, basketball and bean bag throw.
Albert Street Units Opened!
A $1.8 million housing development in Ballarat is at the centre of a new, more inclusive community for eight young people living with disabilities.
The four units, in Albert Street, Sebastopol were opened today by State Member for Buninyong, Geoff Howard. The project is a collaboration between the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), McCallum Disability Services and Housing Choices Australia (HCA), with funding from the Commonwealth and Victorian Governments and McCallum Disability Services.
