I was excited about the opportunity from the moment I first saw this wonderful role advertised. The thing that connected with me immediately, was the fact that YPCT was clearly making a difference to the community on the Peninsula and it is a much needed and valued cause. Serving the community is at the forefront of everything we do and will continue to be so. The future opportunities for YPCT are endless and we will continue to adapt, improvise and overcome any obstacles so that we may best serve and assist our local communities and stay true to our core values.” No doubt, it’s fair to say to the whole of the Yorke Peninsula, watch this space!
