Roller Door Moments: Our Personal 2021 Highlights
We believe in celebrating the important moments in life, the wins. Whether those are big or small. We have a blackboard in our office, where each year we write down our wins and any new doors or opportunities that have opened for us as an organisation. We call these our Roller Door moments. This board is a visual reminder of how far we’ve come and the things we’ve got to be grateful for.
As our supporters, we want to share our wins from 2021 with you!
To you this board may appear to just be some chaotic scrawl, but to us these are cherished moments and dreams achieved!
