Ben and William’s Wish to Walk

ben william wish to walk virginia north brisbane charity golf day family fun train virginia golf course bracken ridge loving nundah local support

Three-year-old identical twins from Virginia, Ben and William, had a challenging start to life. Born 11 weeks premature and weighing just over 1kg each, they spent the first two months of their lives in intensive care. Soon after, it was evident that they were not reaching their milestones and at 8 months old, they were diagnosed with spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy. Put simply, this means that the movement of both their arms and legs is affected, as it this balance due to poor core strength.

With 2 older siblings, their mum Sharon is now their full-time carer. The boys have undergone countless hours of therapy in the hope of providing them with the best chance at a wonderful life. Their dream is to walk independently.

This dream has the potential to become reality. Recently, Ben and William were accepted for a surgery that would improve the boys balance, comfort and most importantly – give the boys the chance to walk.

The community has rallied behind Ben and William and are helping to raise funds for the surgery. The cost is significant, but the benefits are truly life changing.

If you’d like to help this local Virginia family, you are invited to take part in upcoming fundraising events. Follow their journey online here or call directly on 0402 307 489 if you’d like to lend your support.

Aether Brewing HQ is Open

The wait is over – Aether Brewing HQ opened in Northgate on Saturday, 26 October.

Aether Brewing started its first operations, a bar and brewery, in Milton in 2016 by owners Dave Ward and Jimmy Young.

Plans to expand were always on the horizon, but these plans were put into effect quickly after experiencing overwhelming demand for their range of beers.

The decision was made to look for a larger location for their main brewing operations and a Northgate location, close to the railway line, was selected.

The new Northgate location allows Dave and the team to create more consistency among the core range of beers, while making sure there is sufficient capacity to continue being creative and produce new and exciting beers regularly.

Brewing operations commenced in February this year and Dave and the team are excited to open Aether Brewing HQ to the public – a taproom with seating and space for 80 people, and 10 taps.

Locals can expect Aether’s core range on tap, as well as their seasonal brews, which they are famous for.

“We’ve probably made about 70 different beers, with 50 released into the market,” says Dave.

“Our most recent release is our Mango Sticky Rice IPA, where we used 400+ kgs of mango and 150kgs of coconut.”

With the canning line located inside the brewing operations, Dave says they will offer the freshest beer in Brisbane.

“Our packaging will be done on Friday morning, so when people come in on a Friday afternoon they can grab a beer that has come straight off the canning line,” says Dave.

The taproom operates Friday 3pm to 7pm and Sat/Sun 12pm to 7pm, with rotating food trucks planned.

“I hope the locals enjoy exactly what I am looking forward to, which is engaging with people. I know that people smell us when we brew, see us when they drive past, but I can’t wait for them to know who we are and to share the rewards of our passion for good beer,” says Dave.

Breaking the Cycle of Homelessness in Northgate

breaking cycle homelessness northgate loving nundah lodge youth support service young people accommodation community

The Lodge Youth Support Service is a residential living skills program in Northgate that provides accommodation and support to up to four young people aged 16-25 years old who are experiencing homelessness.

The Lodge team provides a nurturing environment that fosters a sense of belonging and assists young people in building the skills needed for independent living, including cooking, nutrition, budgeting, physical health, relationship-building and time management.

‘In the last financial year, seven out of nine young people moved on from The Lodge into independent accommodation and all were engaged in employment or paid traineeships,’ says Theo Samaras, Service Coordinator.

The Lodge has increased its connections with the community by holding sausage sizzles at local Bunning stores, participating in Youth Homelessness Matters Day, the Nundah Festival and holding Open Days at The Lodge.

If you would like to learn more about The Lodge and get involved in any capacity, they would love to hear from you! Please contact a Youth Worker on 3266 2155 or youthworker@thelodgeyss.org.au.
