10 Jun 2020 Annual Appeal
We seek your support for upgrades to our gym equipment for our group classes and to assist our Allied Health Practitioners with rehabilitation work.
Dear Community Members,
Many people in our community have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 restrictions in recent months and we understand it may be a difficult year for our annual appeal.
Last year, donations totalling $17,480 funded the purchase of six recliner lift chairs which have made a big difference to our patients, clients and staff.
If community members are in a position to make a financial contribution to our 2020 appeal, all money raised will go towards the purchase of various pieces of gym equipment.
In the near future we will have an additional physiotherapist here at Timboon and District Healthcare Service which is really exciting. This new position was very much driven by the community.
In consultation with the physio department, we will need to purchase a number of new pieces of equipment that can be used to assist in the individual rehabilitation needs of clients.
We also have a bit of a wish list for equipment that would benefit our existing timetable of group classes run by Tracey Heeps. Such things include a raised plinth that clients can use for strength exercises laying down – without having to get down on the floor.
We thank you for your support through our past appeals and look forward to your continued support as we work together for a healthy community.
