Brainwaves e-News, Ed 44, 2021

Hi Friend,

We are very pleased to thank the State Government for their continued funding support of Epilepsy Tasmania in the recent budget announcements.

I’m also happy to reveal that The Puzzle People’s jigsaw competition is now fully booked. Teams will compete to represent Tasmania at the national puzzle championships while supporting Tasmanians with epilepsy. Mark the 25th of September in your diary and head to the Richmond Primary School Hall between 11 to 2 pm to cheer them on, and buy yourself some pre-loved puzzles to have a go at home and keep your brain active. There will be a sausage sizzle and raffle to enjoy on the day.

In other good news, a long-term member of the Epilepsy Tasmania community is now employed with us. Amy has been part of our organisation for a long time and we are very pleased to have her as a permanent part of our team in the role of Peer Support and Volunteer Project Coordination. You may already recognise Amy from her participation in our My Journey photo exhibition, have heard her epilepsy story on our Podcast series or even spoken to her through our Epilepsy Connect peer support service. We are all very excited to have someone with a lived epilepsy experience on our team and know we will all benefit from this, as well as from her vast business experience. Hear from Amy in her own words below.

A quick reminder to our volunteers that by now you will have received a survey in your email inbox so please complete and return this to us as soon as possible.

Best wishes on this first day of Spring.

Wendy Groot,  CEO Epilepsy Tasmania.
