Things we have done
Spreading the love around Christmas time in 2017
8th December 2017 Santa and Mrs Clause a very special Elf visited the Ipswich Hospital.
Children in Hospital especially over Christmas,
We try so support the elderly without family in Hospital or nursing homes especially over Christmas. As we try to provide several positive fundraising events that bring the community together with lots of family involvement as it is enjoyable for us to see lots of happy faces.
Mother`s Day 2018
Mother’s day, the day we celebrate the person that was there for us all our life. It is a day were we truly can let our moms know how much they are appreciated and cared for. Our mums teaches us how to nurture and how to love. Through her guidance we as individuals learn how to be empathetic and sympathetic to those around us. Mums also have the innate ability to make everything alright.
We know that being a mum can be a thankless job, it is work, with long hours, no vacations and no pay. But yet every mum will tell you that it is the most rewarding job. They will gladly sacrifice themselves for their children. Hence, the greatest reward for all they have done is seeing their children turn into happy successful adults. Therefore, this day is so important for mums to be recognised for what they have done for us.
However, it makes this day a very sad day when the disconnection from the family has occurred. When there is no person celebrating this day with mum. When all mum has is memories.
We at iCAN will try to bring some smiles back to some of the lonely mums in nursing homes. On mother’s day we will visited mothers that have nobody visiting them and hand out a little present trying to make them feel special on this day.
These gifts were given out on mother's day to all the very special ladies who where at the Bundaleer Lodge Nursing Home from our iCAN team who worked very hard of putting this together as all the ladies who got a gift had a big smile and were very grateful to receive a gift from us all.
Gathering of the Clans 2018
On the day of the event we had a very big turn out of members from the public supporting us and buying products that we had on sale on the day. We also had a lot of members of the public asking who we are and what we are all about and gave out lots of information about us on the day.
The iCAN team was working very hard to get donations and raising funds as other thing we were doing on the day too as like giving the public advice about who we are and what we do.

16th of Feb 2019 at Officeworks Oxley
16th of February we had an event at Officeworks at Oxley as it was a very busy day, we did have a few problems with the BBQ at the start and that was fixed as most the day we had to fight with the wind. It was a great day to see the hard workers from iCAN to put their full 100% support in to raise money to help the community. A very big thank you to to all the iCAN to who helped out on Saturday the 16th of February 2019 as we all worked together as a team and won the fight with the wind and the BBQ playing up. As we venture on for the future we all hope to see you all at our next event soon.
