Community Digs Deep For Aged Care Bus
The Community Aged Care Bus Fundraiser has nearly reached its target of $90,000 in just 3 months.
Led by Rotary Club of Numurkah and in partnership with NCN Health the project is raising funds to purchase an 11-seater all-abilities access bus for use by residents of Numurkah Pioneer Memorial Lodge and Karinya Nursing Home to participate in community activities and events.
The bus will also be made available for community groups in Numurkah who support isolated and aged people. Rotary Club of Numurkah has contributed an incredible $25,000 toward the fundraiser and are working on obtaining further government and other grants. They have successfully applied for the Bendigo Bank Community Grant under which $10,000 will be awarded subject to reaching the fundraising target.
The total cost of the project is estimated to be just over $90,000 this includes the purchase of the bus itself and internal renovation to accommodate wheelchair access, handrails and modified step entry. Any additional funds raised will go towards purchasing disability equipment to assist people using the bus, for example walkers or wheelchairs.
Community Members can still help get the Community Aged Care Bus Fundraiser over the finish line by making a direct debit donation via Bendigo Bank.
