The SMART Prebend Centre goes wild!

We would like to say a humongous thank you to everyone involved in the Amphill Parade this year. Special thanks go to the Gala Day Comitee for choosing the SMART Prebend Centre to be the recipients of the donations collected during the wonderful family event.

SMART’s Area Manager, Lisa Harrison took part on the day “This years theme was ‘go wild’ – It was a beautiful sunny day and the costumes worn by all were fantastic. The Ladybirds were a worthy winner of the parade- being super cute. We donned our animal masks and went wild, shaking our collection buckets along the route. Thank you for having us, we cant wait to come back next year!”
