About Rosies Tapestry Fund
Rosies Tapestry Fund was established in June 2004, with a loving bequest from the Jackson Family in memory of their late son, Greg and daughter, Teresa.
Following a major fundraiser held later that year, it was agreed the Tapestry Fund be held in special reserves and used by Rosies only in times of crisis.
The name of the Tapestry Fund comes from a beautiful piece of writing by Teresa, whom, as well as her brother Greg, the Fund was started in honour of. As Teresa writes about her family, the words capture the very essence of Rosies work – building a tapestry of love, family, and support amongst those marginalised within our community.
