Michelle’s youngest daughter Chloe lives with Down Syndrome and has been part of Kurri Kurri Community Centre’s out-of-school-hours (OOSH) program for the past six years.
Heddon Greta resident, Max Gruisinga is one of the friendly faces behind the wheel of the Kurri Kurri Community Services mini bus. Moving to Australia from Holland at the age of six, Max and his family have been actively involved in the Kurri Kurri Community for many years.
Max worked at the BHP Steelworks in Newcastle for many years until it closed and went on to work for a Morisset based construction business for another 10 years.
Upon his retirement a friend asked Max if he’d help out driving the KKCS bus once a fortnight and, eight years on, he remains a valued part of the team.
