About Lotus


Lotus was founded in 2016 by Fiona Lamb.

Secretary: Canice Harridge
Treasurer: Braden Lamb

Fiona’s story – In 2014 I volunteered for 2 years with a National program, doing makeovers for cancer. I loved seeing the fragility of these women transform with a little love, compassion and generosity of spirit.

Although the program gifted a full set of makeup for these ladies unfortunately it was not organic. As I am an organic hairdresser and passionate about organic living and holistic health practices I wanted to enlighten and educate others on the difference of lowering toxic overload on already compromised immune systems. Also I wanted to provide an ongoing program to support them on their journey.

Since my own life partner had an auto immune disease I understood the impact of living with chronic illness.

In 2016 I suffered a life changing health scare myself. I was bedridden for a couple of months with a debilitating back condition which would only get worse without some major life changes. Without these changes my health and livelihood were in jeopardy.

It was during this period that I had the time to create the business plan and dream of founding this program.

I wanted to not only provide a respite/pamper day I wanted to expand the participant participation to not only cancer warriors, but to auto immune diseases, mental health, and disability. In the last 2 years we realised that the carers of these individuals was an imperative service and under valued.

Their cups needed filling in order to continue providing care and support to those in need. Carers provide an invaluable service to community and save government billions of dollars by enabling sufferers to stay in their own homes, not further burdening hospitals and care facilities.

We also decided to offer a comprehensive ongoing program for our participants to connect, educate and be uplifted, on a regular basis with our education and activity sessions held on the alternate month. These sessions include a professional speaker in holistic health and well-being and an activity using organic and holistic practice.

We have been honoured over the past 7 years to have some exemplary leaders in these fields attend on a voluntary basis, as they are also passionate about promoting cleaner lifestyles and have been altruistic ambassadors for Lotus.

Today we have over 120 regular volunteers that provide services offered at our events as well as administration, grant writing, tax services, delivery of our equipment, washing of towels, morning teas and much more that are all needed in order to execute this program to the excellence that we are all proud to be part of.

This year we aim to expand our services to new locations and have exciting changes in place to continue the growth of Lotus. If you would like to be part of a fabulous, fun tribe either as a volunteer, participant or sponsor we would love to have you.

Love & Light

Fiona believes that knowledge is power, the more that people understand about health, the more empowered decisions they can make about their own health.
