The past has a bearing on what Buderim is today and a number of donors have asked that their individual donation commemorates the life of someone special to them. These special people have often had a long-term connection to Buderim.
Six Foundation Ambassadors, Barry Leigh, Bill Lavarack, Phil Illingworth, Merran Williams, Sue Needham and Cherry Perron have volunteered to work with specific donors to breathe life into their stories. Please contact the Foundation if you would like to know more about the Gifts in Memory program.

Long-lost romantic letter returned to Buderim resident
In 1943 a letter was written that changed Loloma Weir’s life. Over seventy years later, thanks to a good samaritan and the Buderim Foundation’s Gifts in Memory webpage it has travelled 1000kms to be returned.
Watch her reaction as she reads it for the first time. Click this link: https://youtu.be/Y9g99395V-o
