Local indigenous artist receives a helping hand

The Grammar Helping Hands team will be out in force this weekend to help a local community hero get back on his feet following a cancer diagnosis earlier this year.
On Saturday, August 11 staff, students and parents from Sunshine Coast Grammar will head out to Daniel Romaine’s property at Pomona to assist the Bloomhill Cancer Care patient, who has since his diagnosis been largely housebound.
The army of helpers will spend the afternoon assisting with a range of home and garden services.
Mr Romaine is an internationally recognised Aboriginal artist who has spent his career supporting numerous charitable causes and sharing his love and passion for art and community across the globe.
Community Services Coordinator at Sunshine Coast Grammar School, Mr Ben Princehorn says this backyard blitz style project is about making a real and meaningful difference to those in our local community in need of a hand.
“A former teacher himself, Mr Romaine has spent much of his teaching career developing programs to connect students and community, so it is an absolute privilege to be able to support such a wonderful Coast local at this time and continue our ongoing partnership with our friends at Bloomhill,” said Mr Princehorn.
“Grammar Helping Hands projects such as this one are a good opportunity for us to give back and support those in our local community and a way to really show faith in action.”
