Friends of Grand Plaza
Honour heroes in our community
"It's amazing how the smallest amount of kindness can put a colossal burst of sunshine in someone's life.."
"All our members have a lot of passion. We do this work not because we have to, it's because we want to."
"I think the most special thing about this area is the diversity. There are people from all walks of life, from many different communities. As a whole, everyone seems to get along quite nicely."
"It is a personal endeavour of mine to rid the community of domestic and family violence."
"It's good to be part of the centre. It's never boring, there's always something happening."
"We all need a helping hand sometimes in our life. I just repay people for what they do for many."
David and Lesley Lyons
"We enjoy helping people less fortunate and the Lions Club work with so many great foundations."
"I get that people make mistakes and I believe that everyone should be given the opportunity to right their wrongs."
"It's about meeting new people, learning something new and quite simply...having a grin!"
"Some tell me they would not get out of bed if they didn't have the walking club to come to.
"Rugby League is a great tool for us to shape the young men in our care and provide opportunities for individuals to feel success on a daily basis."
"There's a mix of people who choose to shop here rather than going everywhere, which I think makes Grand Plaza a special place."
Barry & Cathy Bunn
"For us, it boils down to the pleasure of giving and the satisfaction of being able to help people in their time of need."
"People in Browns Plains are willing to put everything aside to come together and build a better and safer place for all ages to live, shop and work in."
"I love helping children, so I use my volunteering through Blue Light and Forestdale NHW Santa Train to best serve the wonderful kids in the Browns Plains community."
"Sometimes it just takes something small like a meal or a coffee to help make someone's day easier."
"The diverse range of cultures and the passion people have is what makes this community so special."
