The Toowoomba Hospice’s exterior has just had a face lift due to the generosity of Luxury Paints, Rotary Toowoomba North, The Master Painters Association of Qld and their Toowoomba Branch.
Chairman Graham Barron said “The building is over 7 years old and we have just had the entire interior repainted so we thought it would be nice to freshen up the out side of the building, This is where our great friend of the Hospice, Graham Hoppe from Rotary Toowoomba North came in and arranged it. Graham Hoppe approached a couple of the representatives from the Toowoomba branch of the Master Painters Association (MPA) to come and have a look to see what they could do to help”
Before you knew it the Hospice has had at least 12 members from the Toowoomba Branch of the MPA offering to paint with the help of 9 Rotary Toowoomba North members and Luxury Paints jumping on board donating the paint!
Mr Barron said he was amazed as to how efficiently and quickly it all happened especially on the day “They started about 6-ish, did 2 coats of paint and it was all done by 11.30am. They all chipped in and did a fantastic job. This just shows what a wonderful community Toowoomba is and how lucky the Hospice is to have the support from it”
The Toowoomba Hospice provides free palliative and respite care based on mutual respect, trust and individual needs. they are situated at 57b O’Quinn street and relies heavily on community support and donations.
