Social Ventures

During Lilly’s life in Grassy Park various organisations impacted and supported Lilly and her family. These included, schools, churches, sports clubs, youth groups, political organisations and various individuals. Today these organisations continue to support families and individuals in Grassy Park. Lilly’s footsteps is dedicated to continuing this tradition. We support organisations active in the fields of education, sport, culture and health-care.
