Newsletter No 31
It is that time of the year again and Christmas is just around the corner but before getting on to Christmas activities there are one or two other items of news to share with you.
First of all our thanks go to Kathy Feather for all the time, effort and devotion she has given to Age Concern since she became a member of the Executive Committee at the beginning of 2013. She now feels it is time for someone else to take over her position.
Age Concern is always on the lookout for volunteers and now also another person for the Executive Committee. If either of these roles is something you feel you could commit to then please contact Tony Curtis on 971 34 76 41 who will be delighted to talk with you.
Age Concern maintains a large range of equipment which is available for loan to anyone who needs it. There is no charge for this, but a donation is always welcome to ensure the upkeep and replacement as necessary. At the present time, there are 35 pieces of equipment out on loan. If you need to borrow some equipment Jayne Bamber is the person to contact on 971 34 32 32
The committee have just spent over €1500 replacing some of the wheelchairs, walking frames and shower chairs.
Price this year is €25 for Friends of Age Concern and €35 for guests.
For reservations please ring Lyn 971 34 60 94 and advise who you wish to be seated with. All reservations by Friday 1st December please.
