The Team

The success of this project owes much to the enthusiastic team of volunteers who joined Steph to help make her vision a reality.

Special thanks to the Silverstream Lions who invested the initial $10,000 and helped to raise further funds. And to designer Ann Wyatt and illustrator Rachel Driscoll, who donated many skilled hours to create the captivating and positive environment.
