The ever-smiling Estelle has been a resident at Rathdowne Place, an aged care home and partner of the Brotherhood, for over a year.
She recently joined her fellow Rathdowne residents for a Christmas giveaway for all the ages, when the Brotherhood organised a joyful event where the seniors were giving gifts to children from a nearby kindergarten.
