The SHACK

AN APEX COMMUNITY INITIATIVE

Subsidised beach-side accommodation for for families with a child/ children  suffering from chronic illness or disability

What Is The SHACK?

The SHACK is a complex of six 2 bedroom holiday units located on the corner of Scott and Staple Streets, Shoalhaven Heads, NSW.

The units are an Apex/ Community project and were built mostly by voluntary workers using money donated by Apex Clubs and community organisations, businesses and individuals.

The Governor of NSW, Rear Admiral Peter Sinclair AC AO, officially opened the units on 12th July 1992.

A tribute to KRISTINE VINCENT

We are sad to report that Kristine Vincent, wife of Apex Life Governor Ray Vincent and stalwart of the SHACK passed away on Thursday night the 26th March after a long illness.

Kris, the matriarch of the Vincent family, dedicated much of her 70 years to the SHACK which was opened in July 1992. Even before the opening, Kris made a valuable contribution in catering for the many Apexians and local residents working on the construction, being on site where possible, organising the unit interiors and special needs. She spent many hours with Ray visiting Apex Clubs in the search for funds and physical help for the construction of the buildings.

For the next 22 years prior to her illness Kris, was the face of the SHACK, working on the marketing, attending to the bookings. Welcoming guests and attending to all the follow up work resulting from the experiences enjoyed by all those underprivileged children, their families and carers.

Kris, along with Ray, has established a very strong dynasty with 4 children and their partners, 13 grandchildren and 1 great granddaughter who will support Ray in the difficult days ahead.

A Memorial Service will be organised by the Family when possible in the future.

The Foundation will be forever indebted to Kristine for her amazing contribution to the SHACK operation over many years.
