    Auxiliary & Volunteers

    For the past 40 years the Strathmere Lodge Auxiliary has been a dedicated group of volunteers. This vibrant group meet monthly and organize fundraisers during the year to raise money to purchase items for residents. The Auxiliary operates the tuck shop and the ever-popular weekly ice cream parlour. Their support has been invaluable to our home.

    The contribution of volunteers is vital to the success of our home, we have many volunteer opportunities and we always welcome new volunteers.
