The mission of the Lupus Association is to work towards a world without Lupus and associated connective tissue diseases through support education and research into a cure. The Lupus Association is a community based counselling and advocacy service with over 1100 members throughout Australia. We are a non-government, not for profit, self-help organisation. We provide an information and counselling support service for those who have recently been diagnosed as well as those who have been living with lupus for some time.
October is ‘Lupus month’ and we host a number of fundraising events to try and raise money to assist our members. We would love to have quilts or handmade blankets donated, either knitted or crocheted, to be raffled at one of our events. We request that any items made feature butterflies which is our Lupus symbol. Handmade donations can be sent to The Lupus Association of NSW Inc. PO Box 89, North Ryde 1670 NSW.
