Karinya House Prospectus Launch with Annabel Crabb

16 September 2015

Annabel Crabb brought a delicious slice of humour to the machinations of the pollies in a week that was bound to end with tears even if we didn’t know who was crying. We were laughing at her stories at the official launch of Karinya House’s new development to expand and continue the work they do with mothers and babies and new partnerships are being sought to fulfil their financial needs into the future

Crabb is a mum, a writer, a passionate cook, a journalist and the insider with the power to invade the homes and kitchens of federal politicians in her Kitchen Cabinet series and is currently filming ‘Al Desko’ where she invites herself into the pollie’s offices to share their desk dining. Crabb’s aside about the peanut butter sandwich with white bread of one local politician and the stress beating munching of another as he spoon feeds himself Milo straight from the can question those exorbitant entitlements.

But for those who need help in the mothering stakes, when stress and the inability to see a way out of the mire overwhelms them, then Karinya is a haven. Home. Hope. Horizon. is the three word slogan they’re marketing and have the support of the ACT Government to extend this unique facility.
