Order of Malta Australia




On Thursday 15th November, the Order’s NSW Branch Chairman, David Hall, was pleased to present Bronwyn Crosby, Deputy Director of St Vincent’s Alcohol and Drug Service, with a cheque for $28,035. This latest donation brings the total funds raised by the NSW branch for the Gorman House Detoxification unit to a magic milestone of $1 million.

Gorman House is a 20-bed, non-medical residential detoxification unit whose primary function is to provide a safe and supportive environment for people who are withdrawing from drug and alcohol addictions. The short-term detoxification program is provided free of charge and consistently operates at full occupancy. In 2006, when health budget cuts reduced funding for the unit, the NSW branch agreed to work in partnership with St Vincent’s Hospital to ensure this valuable service could continue operating 24/7.

The cheque was presented at the NSW branches White Knights Cocktail function and was attended by 110 people. Proceeds from the evening will be used to assist the Order’s mission of helping the poor and the sick, which is very relevant to the Gorman House partnership.
