MORE than 30 volunteers at a Kingsley aged care facility were thanked for their efforts at a morning tea this month.
Bethanie Kingsley held the event as part of National Volunteer Week from May 9 to 15.
The volunteers take on various roles across the not-for-profit organisation’s retirement villages, independent living units, social centres and lifestyle villages as well as supporting clients in their own homes.
Volunteer work can include helping with sensory walks, gardening, bingo and nail pampering, as well as pastoral and spiritual care.
“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 client,” Bethanie corporate outreach program manager Laurette LeCras said.
The May 13 morning tea saw volunteers, residents and staff entertained with the musical styling of Gary Lynn.
