Mildura Weekly : Friday July 18 Vol 8 No 37
Mildura Weekly – 18/07/14 25 www.milduraphonebook.com.au THE latest addition to Mil- dura-based Christie Centre Inc, Christie’s Emporium in 7th Street, will be cele- brated with a massive clear- ing sale from 1pm today, and continuing tomorrow. The Christie’s Emporium, formerly the ADRA new and used office furniture show- room and warehouse, is a fur- ther expansion of the Christie Centre’s business holdings, with the main aim being to find meaningful employment for an increasing number of people with disabilities, and while remaining a not-for- profit business, will be expect- ed to be self-sustainable. The Emporium has al- ways been a busy place under ADRA control, and the Chris- tie Centre expects to attract even more business with a few ideas it has in mind. There are currently eight staff involved in the day-to-day running of the business. Mildura’s Christie Centre has been a valued part of the Sunraysia community over six decades, gradually expanding its services to provide a bet- ter way of life for a wide range of program participants with varying disabilities. The head office has always been in 12th Street, opposite Mildura Waves, but expan- sion through the years has seen the organisation grow to include Life Skills on Pine (contract work, volunteer work and work experience with district business houses), ArtRageUS, a centre for arts, crafts, puppets, drama, short films, choirs and exhibitions, the Aroundagain centre for re-cycling, sales of household furniture and other goods, along with a secure document shredding service, and the Chocolate Shop, another suc- cessful Christie Centre busi- ness enterprise. • Continued next page All systems ‘go’ for Christie’s Emporium Sunraysia 15 8th Street, Mildura (03) 5021 1210 firstname.lastname@example.org Riverland Old Sturt Highway, Berri (08) 8582 1844 email@example.com www.devilees.com.au SALE!
