90 years old and celebrating life

The Matriarch of Team Haddy recently turned 90. Each year Team Haddy join us for the Walk 4 Hope at Parramatta and get together with many of their family members.

Robyn Russell said Our Mum, Pauline Hadfield, turned 90 on January 25th. Despite being a little reluctant at first, she soon warmed to the idea of having a celebration when she realised it was a good excuse for a long overdue family reunion. People travelled from interstate to attend.

Mum is the eldest of eight children, six of whom are still alive; five were present at the party. Mum of course has five children and we were all there, along with our families! It was a wonderful day and a fit-ting way to celebrate Mum’s life. We really feel blessed to have Pauline as our mum and the matriarch of our extended family.
