Teddy is 7 and cares for his older sister Lucy, who experienced an acute ischemic stroke, from which she sustained an Acquired Brain Injury.
To recognise him for all the amazing care and support he provides to his sister, we organised a Dream Experience for Teddy at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary - to try out being a Zoo Keeper for the day! 🐨
“Our heartfelt thanks to Little Dreamers and Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary for organising Teddy’s Dream Experience. He had a wonderful time and enjoyed every minute of it.
He has a great love of learning and knows a number of facts about Australian animals, so Lone Pine’s Keeper for the Day was a very special time for him!
He has regaled us with many stories of the things he learnt and fun activities he did and took HEAPS of photos (most of them blurry!) for his sister Lucy, so she didn’t feel left out.
At the end of the day, when I picked up Teddy, one of the Keepers told me that Teddy is welcome back anytime and that they hope to see him back at future school holidays. I was touched by this comment as he made such an impression on their team!" ❤️
She's 11 years old, and cares for her brother who has Autism and an intellectual disability.
Jemima went to see Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat for her Dream Experience, and even got to go backstage and meet the actors! 🌈✨
"It was so great, she absolutely loved it. Thank you so much. It’s most definitely fuelled her passion for the stage even more. We went around to the stage door after the show and had pictures taken with Euan who plays Joseph and she also met Shane Crawford! We had a lovely night and great seats!"
I’m stepping out of my comfort zone in 2023 and raising money for @littledreamersaustralia and Young Carers in the progress 💪🏻🕺 • 5km fun run in March • Active Escapes retreat in April • 60km Trek through the Larapinta in NT in May
I’m excited, I’m terrified and I’m ready to get into the best shape of my life - physically and most importantly, mentally.
I am aiming to raise $10,000 to ensure that every Young Carer has access to equitable support to improve their quality of life. If you’re able to donate I have included a link in my bio 💁♀️
We still have a couple of spots left on the Larapinta Trek if you’re interested in getting on board, trekking across the Australian Outback over 5 days whilst raising money and awareness for @littledreamersaustralia and Young Carers ✨...
