A home away from home for patients

A replica of the photograph featured on the Welcome to Berri eastern entrance sign was recently donated to Adelaide accommodation facility Greenhill Lodge Bluey’s Room – named after late Riverlander ‘Blue’ Evans – to make local patients feel more at home while undergoing cancer treatment in the city. Pictured with the artwork to be donated are (from left) the late Blue Evans’ wife Margaret Evans, Berri Bowling Club life member and cancer patient staying at Greenhill Lodge Kath Mader, Rivergraphics’ Dean Hambling, with cancer survivor Karen Werner, who also captured the image.
