The annual Agapi Care radiothon is set to take place this Sunday, 15 May, from 11am to midnight, live on 3XY (1422 AM) from 537 High Street in Preston.

The funds raised will be allocated towards the ongoing development of the not-for-profit organisation’s new projects to improve the quality and accessibility of the services provided for people with special needs.

This year marks the 35th Anniversary of Agapi Care, and there are some major projects under way, as president of the organisation, Arthur Evriniadis has announced.

“In 2022 we will be completing the build of our new corporate head office at 4 Bruce Street Preston, the building of our new facility at Liston Road Glenroy and now the refurbishment of our new purchase in Oakleigh.”

The new centre in Oakleigh is at the heart of the Greek community, on 15 Burlington St, and will offer short term Accommodation, Assistance and Respite for people with disability living in that region.

The achievements and quality of care provided by this organisations has been once again rewarded. Chief Executive Officer Mary Gakopoulos expressed their delight in receiving the Community Organisation of the Year Award and the Highly Commended Business Award for 2021.

“This achievement by all is another indication of our commitment to high quality service delivery, as we aim to continually improve our services and support by listening to your feedback,” she states.

Agapi Care has grown thanks also to the generosity of the community and the donations received, during the organisation’s annual radiothons.
