Posted by katie collis on

The pancare foundation is a not for profit organisation that helps patients and families affected by pancreatic and gastric cancers. They provide support with counselling from diagnosis to bereavment, financial support connection to oncologists, cancer research and much more.   Pancreatic and digestive cancers and some of the most serious and hardest to treat cancers. No patient or family should have to go though the heartbreak and uncertainty of any cancer. I'd like to help to lessen this.

The blue wren

Posted by katie collis on

The blue wren also know as the fairy wren are found in South Eastern Australia. My business was named after these cute little birds as they were commonly seen around the garden where my parents used to live.  The males have the blue feathers and are known to sing to their eggs before the babies hatch. The babies then hatch recognising their parents voice. Source https://www.australiangeographic.com.au/topics/wildlife/2019/03/a-guide-to-australias-fairy-wrens/
