Prahran resident, John Potter, has decided to leave a gift in his Will to Uniting after seeing the positive impact our work made in his friend Robert’s life.

Robert was a regular at Hartley’s Community Dining Room, where he enjoyed precious times socialising and sharing food.

By reaching out to Uniting, Robert also found support for his mental health and was able to secure permanent housing where he lived happily until he passed away.

“The continual assistance and regular meetings with his caseworker helped Robert live a fulfilled life,” John remembers.

“I’ve known about the work that Uniting does for 20-odd-years and I’m aware that ongoing support from the community is needed. I want to be a part of the services continuing for a long time to come.”

A lifetime of generosity

Over the years, John has found many ways to support Uniting, enabling more people like Robert to access the services they need to survive and thrive.

A lifelong devotee of art, John has purchased several works from exhibitions held at Hartley’s over the years. He enjoys keeping up to date with what’s happening across Uniting, attends events and has also donated many items to the Prahran Goodwill Shop.

John has now given the gift of a lifetime, “I have chosen to leave a gift in my Will because I’ve seen first-hand the support Uniting gave to my dear friend, Robert.”
