Established 1st December, 1999.

It is with great relief our Organisation has managed to secure all the positions needed to successfully operate and continue to offer support and education for people with Lupus.
At the AGM, we were able to gather together a blend of old, recycled expertise of Murray, and the new I will give it a go, Leanne, and the very kind volunteer of Di Whiteley who has past experience as a club secretary and who is new to Lupus.
A group of members, Julie, John, Cheryl, Edna, and Heather also rallied to help as co-ordinators, editor and committee members. Thanks to all we will stay viable and continue the work to improve the lives of people with Lupus.
