Rural Northwest Health’s Warracknabeal auxiliary is looking for like-minded people who enjoy working as a group to help support their local health service.
The auxiliary is a little light on numbers and president Bev Joyce wants to recruit some fresh faces to the group. She said gender would not matter.
“We are keen to get both men and women onto the auxiliary and would love to have a few younger members too,” Mrs Joyce said.
“We meet once a month at the Rural Northwest Health Warracknabeal campus and we work on a handful of projects each year,” she said.
“So it’s not necessarily a major commitment but it is certainly a rewarding one.”
Mrs Joyce said auxiliary projects included an annual raffle and a variety of craft activities.
“We crochet blankets and make items for aged care and acute,” she said.
“We like to get involved in special projects and some of our more recent examples include donating a toy box and outdoor play gym to the acute unit and providing outdoor seating and iPads for Yarriambiack Lodge residents.”
The auxiliary meets on the third Wednesday of each month. Anyone interested in becoming involved can contact the secretary Sharon Powell on 5396 1200 during business hours.
