Arcare Helensvale St James celebrates 101st birthday with Lalla Redshaw

The clients and team members of the Arcare Helensvale St James community gathered together last week in celebration of an incredible milestone – the 101st birthday for Lalla Redshaw.

Lalla is no stranger to living her best life, holding fond memories of working as a manager at her local Woolworths and as a gifted pianist, performing at the Sydney Conservatorium.

Outside of work, she held a passion for ballroom dancing and a championship title for single ladies social lawn bowling.

Good talent must run in the family as Lalla is also related to famous Australian writer and poet Henry Lawson who is well known for his work with Australian poet Banjo Paterson.

She continues to share her good humour, wisdom and life stories with the Arcare Helensvale St James community and looks forward to creating more memories together.
