The Ultimate Family Adventure!

Congratulations to the Flegg Family!

The lifetime memories of the ultimate family adventure has excited our team for months, now we are proud to announce that the Flegg family from Dundas Valley, Sydney, are the winners of the 2015 Fundraising major prize draw, the ultimate family adventure, a Disney Cruise to the Caribbean!
Imagine the brilliant blue seas, the endless sapphire skies, the broad smiles across the children’s faces and the ultimate prize, quality family time that will create lifelong memories for the family.
From any capital city in Australia, the Flegg family will be flying to the United States, spending a night in Orlando, Florida before boarding the stunning Disney Fantasy for seven magical nights cruising the azure blue waters of the Caribbean. The Flegg family will then visit Mexico along with the Cayman Islands before a trip to Disney’s very own private island, Castaway Cay where Jack Sparrow and his infamous Black Pearl await.

“This is simply amazing,” said Dave, “we can’t believe this.” Out of the thousands of entries, the lucky family from Dundas Valley will be joined by the full cast of Disney characters. “Keira loves all the Disney characters,” said Danielle of her daughter, Keira, aged 3.

Keira attends Telopea’s Sophie’s Cottage, where owner and educator Suzanne Mayday and her wonderful team celebrated this amazing prize. Sophie’s Cottage is approaching its’ 20th year in the Telopea/Dundas area and provides a unique service to a range of parents. 

“This year’s prize is simply amazing,” said Angela Gibson, General Manager of Educational Experience, “We were so thrilled to take our Fundraising initiative to a new level this year. We had a new wide range, brilliant prizes for centres, groups and schools, plus this amazing prize for the Flegg family.”
“This is the ultimate prize,” said National Marketing and Communications Manager, Evan Redman, “we wanted to give away time with the family. There is no better prize.” Worth over $16000, the Flegg family will be travelling across the world knowing that they have helped Sophie’s Cottage Kindergarten at Telopea raise ever important funds.
“We had so many centres, schools and groups nominated to receive 20% in Learning Resource Vouchers in this year’s Fundraising,” said Angela. Parents and families were also able to nominate Life Education Australia to receive 20% of Learning Resource Vouchers. “As our long term partners, we are so proud to support the brilliant work of Life Education and Healthy Harold in shaping our future with confident, resilient children,” added Angela.
