BIGGEN­DEN Lions Club Aged Care clients were over­whelmed when they each re­ceived a knit­ted or cro­cheted rug at their Christ­mas party.

They were treated to a party at the Grand Ho­tel where they were pre­sented with a large box of bis­cuits be­fore this sur­prise gift.

The gifts were courtesy of mem­bers of the Camper­van and Mo­torhome Club of Aus­tralia. Th­ese mem­bers sup­port com­mu­ni­ties they visit by knit­ting or cro­chet­ing rugs, bean­ies and scan bags for nurs­ing homes, hos­pi­tals and on­col­ogy cen­tres.

Read­ing a let­ter from the group, aged care co-or­di­na­tor Eleanor Lis­ton said it was a plea­sure to be able to do­nate items.

“They have been made with love and sin­cer­ity for your clients,” she said.

PRESENTS GA­LORE: Biggen­den Lions Aged Care Ser­vice clients Alby Cross, Joan Cur­tis, Mar­ion Powel and (front) Grace McGre­gor, Au­dreyWeather­ston, Joyce Fowler and Ali­son White were sur­prised to re­ceived a cro­chet or knit­ted blan­ket at their Christ­mas party last week.
