Meet Amanda

My name is Amanda & I attend the Women’s Social program at MDS. Some of my favourite activities include shopping, city outings, craft nights, dinner outings & going to the movies. I have been lucky to also have attended things like Disney On Ice, musicals & Vivid!

I enjoy this group as there is always a variety of things to look forward to each fortnight. I have met lots of new friends through this program & enjoy their company. Always inclusive with everyone & always lots of laughter & fun!
