CURRAJONG Disability Services have finally received the long awaited Care Chair from the proceeds of the Railway Bowling Club’s Day On The Green from early February.

In a real boost for CDS, enough funds were not only raised for one Care Chair but two, ensuring all clients in need will be able to access the new equipment moving forward. That brings the total of Care Chairs now at Currajong to three.

Contributors included Cunningham’s IGA who donated from their Community Chest Program towards the cause while Companions Thru Cancer also stepped up with a substantial gift. There was also a significant personal contribution made directly to CDS for the new Care Chair from a generous local community member.

“It’s fantastic for Currajong,” said Jeff Evans, CEO of Currajong Disability Services.

“There has been a tremendous collective effort and fundraising drive and we are ecstatic.

“It has exceeded our expectations and we can’t thank everyone enough!”

The first care chair has arrived with the second on its way but plans are underway to get it here sooner rather than later which is great news for CDS clients in need.

“It has been a great start to 2018 for us and we hope to continue our magical 25 year anniversary,” said Jeff.
