Nothing like a fresh coat of paint and a new friendship

Alongside starting a new business, Elisabeth Riedig also volunteers for In Great Company, visiting Helen in Hervey Bay.

“My first visit to Helen went very well and we built a wonderful rapport, we had a great chat and I got to know more about her.

During subsequent visits Elisabeth learned of Helen’s intention of reviving her garden ornaments and surprised her with paints and brushes.  

Debra Simkins cares for Helen as a Community Support Worker and says, “Elisabeth and Helen have hit it off famously.  Elisabeth is a wonderful volunteer and Helen is thrilled to have help to have her garden ornaments repainted.”
