Friends of Symes Thorpe Update


The friends of Symes Thorpe raise money to provide extra amenities at Symes Thorpe. We do this by holding Tombola, which is like a cent sale. Recently we have provided a bird bath so residents can enjoy watching the wildlife, replaced the chapel curtains, supplied special clocks for the dementia ward, two DVD players, plaques for the RSL memorial garden and a shade structure to enable residents to enjoy the good weather in comfort. We also supply a gift for every resident at Christmas and Easter. Over recent years our membership has decline gradually and we are in need of new members to be able to continue assisting the residents of Symes Thorpe. We hold the Tombola 5 times a year and a meeting the following Friday. For further information please have a chat to Elizabeth Dutton or Jean Mathies. P.S. As well as raising funds for a good cause, Elizabeth and I have had a lot of fun as well. Jean Mathies (President)
