This December, representatives from PZ Cussons delivered Christmas gifts from their staff to OzChild’s disability respite care facility, Valerie May House, as part of the Wishing Tree Gift Appeal. OzChild Valerie May House staff member Nathan showed them around the house. Brightly coloured photos of smiling kids at the beach, the park, play centres and meeting the Easter Bunny adorn the walls.
“We can go on outings every weekend now, thanks to you,” Nathan explained to PZ Cussons.
Earlier this year, international manufacturer PZ Cussons agreed to support OzChild’s Valerie May House, a respite care house for kids with disabilities.
Not only are there games, TV and an adventure playground for the kids to enjoy at the house, the OzChild staff also take them on outings to the places like the zoo and the beach. The staff, equipment, transport and ticketing required is costly so trips were limited. With PZ Cussons support, the team at Valerie May House were able to plan additional outings with more children participating. Luckily, PZ Cussons stepped in to support Valerie May House.
PZ Cussons brought a fantastic selection of gifts which Valerie May House guests will receive over the holiday season.
One very special Christmas present was from a PZ Cussons staff member’s nine-year-old daughter, Bethan. Bethan saw a gift tag for Summer, another nine-year-old girl like herself but with an intellectual disability. Something about Summer’s situation resonated with Bethan, so she filled a bag full of gifts for her.
Thank you PZ Cussons staff (and your kids) for your generosity this Christmas.
