Lloyd Giffin said he felt tearful but very proud to be at last weeks official opening of the GROW Community Centre Sue Giffin House.
The Ballina Street centre is named after his daughter Sue, who moved to the North Coast in 1997 when she was suffering advanced stages of breast cancer. Sue died in 1999, a fortnight before her 40th birthday, leaving a significant bequest to GROW.
She always looked after her friends, he said. She was a girl who listened to people so she knew a lot about her friends. A lot of people dont listen.
GROW is a community mental health movement which provides mutual support self-help groups based on a 12-step program of personal growth. For more information phone 6621 3737.
