OTIS expands across the country

Wednesday, February 24, 2016

The OTIS Foundation, a Bendigo charity providing retreat accommodation at no cost to people living with breast cancer, now offers retreats in almost every state of Australia.

Since beginning almost 15 years ago with the first three breast cancer retreats in Mandurang, The OTIS Foundation has grown to offer more than 30 retreats across Victoria, South Australia, New South Wales, Queensland and the Northern Territory.

The OTIS Foundation’s General Manager, Rachel Mason, said the charity has experienced rapid expansion in the past 12 months, “This time last year OTIS was able to offer 18 retreats in three states for people living with breast cancer to enjoy time together with their loved ones. As of today we have 31 retreats in our near national network with more properties becoming available all the time” Mrs Mason said.

“Through these retreats and Kez’s Hideaway, which will open in Redesdale later this year, this year we expect to offer almost 4000 night’s accommodation to our guests, with bold ambitions to significantly increase this figure over the coming years.” added Mrs Mason.

The majority of OTIS properties are generously donated by individuals who provide access to their holiday home or second property for selected periods throughout the year. The OTIS Foundation then coordinates all bookings for OTIS guests during the times specified and takes responsibility for all cleaning and linen costs. The Foundation is currently seeking additional beachside properties along the Victorian coast.
