THEY say a small gesture can go a long way and that’s exactly what happened at the recent Currajong Carers Support Group (CCSG) meeting when the Currajong Sewing Group and the CCSG donated a hand-made quilt to the Cedar Cafe at Greenparkes Garden Centre for their continued support and generosity.
The quilt donation idea, which was the brainchild of former CDS employee and the recently retired Roberta Stone and current CDS employee Deitre Jackson, was presented by Currajong clients Dearnne Callaghan and Karen Willis to the centre.
“When told of the idea Lethe Rawson of CCSG was all for the idea,” said Deitre Jackson.
“Cedar Cafe at Greenparkes Garden Centre have been an incredible supporter of the Currajong Carers Support Group.
“They were certainly very honoured to receive it but I know I speak on behalf of everyone when I say it was a pleasure,” said Deitre.
Cedar Cafe has hosted Currajong Carers Support Group meetings for some time now and it is a partnership that has stood the test of time.
“It is these types of valuable community contributions and outstanding efforts that allow organisations like the CCSG to thrive,” said Marketing and Communications Co-ordinator Dane Millerd.
“Cedar Cafe has long been a part of the Currajong family and we are extremely grateful for all they do.
“It also typifies the outstanding spirit within the Parkes and surrounding regions – something we have also recently witnessed with the Railway Bowling Club Day On The Green,” said Millerd.
The donation comes on the back of an announcement by Parkes Painting Group that donations from this years art show will again go to Currajong Disability Services in another positive boost for the organisation.
“Parkes Painting Group, like Cedar Cafe, have been a tremendous part of the Currajong family and their efforts allow us to make important additions to our services,” said Millerd.
“We would certainly be struggling a lot more without their support.
“From everyone at CDS and CCSG and the Currajong Sewing Group – thank you!”
