Aged citizens relish helping out



THE Kingscliff Aged Care group not only helps senior citizens living at home get out and about, it also donates to some of the Tweed's essential services.

Kingscliff Ambulance Station is the latest recipient of the seniors' fund-raising.

Station manager Garry Francis yesterday received a $2000 donation from Kingscliff Aged Care co-ordinator Frank Briggs.

Mr Francis said the donation would help buy essential equipment including a pulse oximeter, which measures blood oxygen levels, and a glucometer, for measuring blood sugar levels.

The $2000 was raised from relishes, jams, pickles and crocheted items sold by the seniors at a stall at the Kingscliff Amenities Hall.

Mr Briggs said the Kingscliff Aged Care group provided a vital respite service and needed volunteers to help the seniors develop activity skills. If you can help, phone 0427 663 341.
