Apex Foundation Chairman and Director visit Children’s Cancer Institute

In June 2022 , Apex Foundation Company Secretary, Mike Fitze & Chairman Tony Wilshire visited the Children’s Cancer Institute at the Lowry Cancer Research Centre at UNSW Randwick. They were very warmly welcomed by, Executive Director Professor Michelle Haber AM, & Chief Marketing & Fundraising Officer, Anne Johnston. Both Michelle & Anne acknowledged how Apex & The Apex Foundation were phenomenal supporters of the Institute over many years, & how they very much treasured the relationship.

Michelle & Anne were very excited that the Apex Foundation wanted to further escalate this great partnership, & gave us an in depth snapshot of their future plans which are very significant, with new technologies, further escalating their impact, and collaborations going forward.

We were also shown a story video, which demonstrates some of the things CCI does. Please follow the link Ellie’s Story. This is all about Zero Childhood Cancer. These people are incredible to say the least, & the Apex Foundation is incredibly proud of the huge part that Apex played in the establishment, & ongoing support.

On behalf of the Apex Foundation, Mike & Tony offered continued support, & the Children’s Cancer Institute is progressing a proposal for the Board to consider.

Apex Foundation supports the homeless through Safe Waters Community Care Inc.

Homeless Shelter | Safe Waters Community Care | Ulladulla. Registered Charity Not-for-profit ABN: 58 875 473 374  Address: 88 South Street, ULLADULLA, NSW, 2539

Website :  https://www.safewaterscc.org

Safe Waters Community Care Inc. was established in August 2019 by a small committee to assist the most vulnerable people in the Ulladulla district, experiencing homelessness, domestic violence, substance misuse difficulties, poverty, and social isolation.  Safe Waters Community Care Inc. is the only provider of this type of service in this area. The closest other service would be over 100km away. The service is in its infancy and meeting great demand after the 2019 bushfires and severe rental crisis experienced in this region.

Safe Waters Community Care Inc. have established one Safe House and are working towards renovating and fitting out two other properties in the heart of Ulladulla that will offer temporary and night-by-night crisis accommodation to the most vulnerable.

They have a part-time co-ordinator and fifty unpaid volunteer support staff providing service 7 days a week.

It’s great to see the Apex Club of Milton Ulladulla also assisting Safe Waters Community Care Inc. by offering support to the Committee and ongoing work parties.

Due to the established need, the Apex Foundation decided to provide assistance through its Community Fund to assist with the establishment cost of these Safe Shelter properties. An initial $30,000 grant has been approved towards rewiring and electrical upgrade of the premises, concrete pathway for disability access and timber deck with pergola.

The Apex Foundation giving opportunities for future employment for Students with Autism

 The Apex Foundation has supplied a trailer and tools worth more than $13,000 for a very special project for a school for children with Autism at the Aspect School in the Central Coat of New South Wales.  Two years ago, we funded a Van for the same school to assist the children out of the classroom and into the community to increase their employment opportunities.

This year, we took a further step and agreed to support the school with the purchase of equipment for a school/ community-based lawn and garden maintenance program for their high school students.

The aim of the program is to provide work experience opportunities within the school and the community with the possibility of a traineeship in the future. We worked closely with the students and the teachers to find out exactly what they needed and came up with the following:

8 ft x 5 ft caged Trailer with ramp

  • Sign writing on the Trailer
  • 2 x Mowers – Petrol driven
  • 2 x Brush cutters – battery operated
  • 2 x Blowers – battery operated
  • 1 x Hedger – battery operated
  • Spare Batteries
  • Wheelbarrow
  • Garden tools and tool bags
  • Brooms, rakes, and garbage bins
  • Safety gear and sun hats for 12 students
  • Fuel cans and
  • towbar for the Bus which we donated two years ago.

 

We tried to make sure that the tools we bought were user friendly for every child and therefore purchased battery operated tools with low noise and less vibration, as far as possible. The School now has a full lawn mowing and home gardening business ready for work including full cans of fuel.

 

The Trust that funded this project was the Autism Trust that the APEX Foundation manages which came from funds that Apex clubs around Australia had raised in 1969 during a Walk around Australia by the Apex clubs of Australia to raise awareness of Autism and Autism research.

This program will have a huge positive long-term impact for many high school students, who are living with Autism, for many years into the future.
