Shirley W. Nepean Memorial Fund
Delta Society has received a generous charity bequest from the Shirley W. Nepean Estate. Funds from the bequest will support the establishment of the NSW Central Coast Branch of Delta Therapy Dogs. Over a three year period the Central Coast branch will grow through the recruitment, training and retention of volunteers and management of health care facilities in the area.
Shirley lived in Narrara, a suburb of the Central Coast region of New South Wales. Her niece, Averil describes her as "Gentle and caring to all creatures, she charmed most who met her with her smile and ready conversation. Shirley was devoted to her parents, her home and heritage. She was very loyal to family, friends and neighbours, community and Church".
Shirley's legacy has ensured her charitable donations are assigned to those most in need in the Central Coast community. We are honoured to have been chosen to continue Shirley's legacy through the development of the Central Coast Therapy Dogs branch.
