Alan's Story

Posted on 25 April 2018
Alan's Story
Alan commenced work with Thorndale Industries in May of 2014. Prior to working at Thorndale he spent 38 years on the railway and took a volunteer redundancy due to a decrease in his health.
He spent a year unemployed and in this time endured some health issues which saw him having an operation.
Alan heard about Thorndale through friends and also saw our Plasser Street location. He was successful in applying for a job in the
packaging warehouse and as the business expanded and we
relocated to our purpose built factory back on Rance Rd Werrington, Alan changed roles now working on the Recycling crew on a regular basis.
He assists staff to empty the charity bins across various sites in Penrith, Wetherill Park and the city. He works 4 days a week and every second Sunday due to an increased demand in the recycling
department.
Alan is well liked by all his peers and is willing to assist anyone where he can, he regularly helps when there is overtime and has become an invaluable asset to the Thorndale Industries team.
Nothing would run smoothly without you and we look forward to many more years working together at Thorndale. Thankyou for your ongoing commitment and efforts.

Thorndale Gala Night

We are excited to announce that we will be hosting a black and gold themed 'Thorndale Gala Night' at St Marys Rugby Leagues Club on 19 May.
The money we raise from the fundraising Gala night will be directed to fund a state of the art sensory facility for people with high to exceptional support needs, this will be the first of its kind in outer Western Sydney. This facility will provide support to not only adults with a disability but also children with a disability and the elderly living in our community.
A Sensory Room at a cost of $90,000, is a specially designed room which combines a range of stimuli to help individuals develop and engage their senses. These can include lights, colours, sounds, sensory soft play objects, aromas all within a safe environment that allows the person using it to explore and interact without risk. Sensory rooms can help those who have learning difficulties, developmental disabilities or sensory impairments learn to interact with the world around them, but in a safe environment that builds up their confidence and their ability.
The Thorndale Gala ticket price includes a three course meal, drinks, entertainment, silent auction, live auction, a wine wall, games, raffles and much more, so come and join the fun and also support a great cause within the Nepean community.

Melissa's Story

Posted on 10 April 2018
Melissa's Story
Melissa is a young woman with Downs Syndrome who has worked in our Australian Disability Enterprise (ADE) since 2009. This year an opportunity became available for Melissa to move out of the family home and into supported accommodation into our newest home.

Although the move out of home has had some mixed emotions Melissa is happily enjoying living more independently with two other ladies. Whenever someone asks Melissa how she is enjoying her new home she responds "I love it".

Melissa and her other house mates enjoy showing their home off to family and friends and they have had the opportunity to do this by hosting people for morning and afternoon tea. Melissa proudly talks to her friends about the various meals she cooks notes that spaghetti bolognaise is her favourite recipe.

Melissa also talks, with great enthusiasm, about doing housework and keeping her home neat and tidy!
Thorndale is pleased to have been able to provide this opportunity to support Melissa in living an independent lifestyle. Seeing people happy and enjoying the support we are able to provide reminds us why we do we the things we do.
