Tea, thanks for care vol­un­teers

Cockburn Gazette - - NEAR YOU -

AN AGED care cen­tre in Hamil­ton Hill has thanked vol­un­teers dur­ing an af­ter­noon tea on Fri­day.

The tea is one of a num­ber of so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties that will be held by the not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion through­out May.

Vol­un­teers take on gardening, cook­ing, driv­ing, sports, games, arts and crafts and ev­ery­thing in be­tween.

With 600 vol­un­teers, Bethanie’s outreach pro­gram man­ager Lau­rette LeCras said it was clear how im­por­tant their con­tri­bu­tion is. “Whether it’s through so­cial in­ter­ac­tion with a res­i­dent, run­ning a games group like bingo or even those who can help with one off spe­cial events, ev­ery lit­tle bit makes such a big dif­fer­ence and really helps to brighten the day of our clients,” she said.”
