Wilsonton Lions Club has continued to show their support to the Toowoomba Hospice by supporting the ‘Adopt A Room’ Campaign for $3,500.00 to help with the care of people who are suffering from a terminal illness.
Toowoomba Hospice Chairman Mr. Graham Barron OAM said “The Wilsonton Lions Club has again shown their support by giving us money that can be used to help our clients have a more comfortable stay while we are caring for them in the Hospice. We are very fortunate to have strong community support, and Wilsonton Lions Club is no exception.”
President of the Wilsonton Lions Mrs. Elaine Kieseker said “The Wilsonton Lions Club is made up of ordinary people doing extraordinary things – supporting people with a disability, community greening, and fundraising for worthwhile causes.”
“Those who Adopt a Room will be adding to the dignity and calmness that surrounds a client during their last stages of life”, said Mr. Barron “Our Adopt A Room Campaign is used to maintain a fresh and comfortable environment when required; fresh paint, touch ups, purchase furnishings/furniture for the room as well as general maintenance”
Toowoomba Hospice is a not-for-profit, community facility, caring for people with a terminal illness and their families at no cost. The Hospice is located in O’Quinn Street, Toowoomba and needs to raise valuable funds to keep the service running.
Wilsonton Lions Club President Lion Elaine Kieseker and Secretary Lion Carmel Goldsworthy were on hand to see the room their club has ‘Adopted’ get a fresh coat of paint “We are very proud to be able to serve our community” said Lion Carmel
