Amanda Wheatley

Amanda has been with Four Reasons Why since it was established in 2017 as the treasurer.  Amanda  comes from a banking background of 20 years and now currently in property management for the last 8 years.

Trudi Shelton

I am a local single mother who is extremely passionate about my community and being of service to others. As someone who has experienced hardship and trauma I know how tough life situations can be at times. Now that I am back on my feet I decided it was time to give back to my generous and caring community by helping others in need to get back on theirs.

I am a Pastoral Care Worker and Youth Worker by profession which gives me an understanding of the needs in our community and where to direct the financial or gift assistance and “life” supports that families, individuals, homeless persons, aged and disability persons need.

My community services professional skills, my passion to help and the drive of being an example to my children are what makes me a dynamic, creative benevolent force in my community and I absolutely love it. I appreciate the privilege I am afforded to those who open their homes and hearts to receiving along with those that give generously. 

Together in kindness we grow and thrive.

I am a single mother of four and they are my reasons why.
