Branding irons deliver scorching hot donation to Highview

Jun 13, 2024

The Lions Club of Dorrigo generously donated $5000 to the Dorrigo Multi-Purpose Service.

The substantial donation will go towards enhancing the comfort and care of frail aged residents at Highview through the purchase of patient comfort items and essential equipment.

The impressive donation was made possible through a unique and innovative fundraising project that captivated the local farming community.

In a spirited auction, local farmers bid for the right to have their farm brand burned into a large timber slab.

Nurse Manager Lynn Forsyth expressed her gratitude towards the Dorrigo Lions Club, not only for their substantial donation but also for their creativity and commitment in organising such an original fundraising initiative.

“We are incredibly thankful to the Lions for their support,” Ms Forsyth said.

“Their innovative approach to fundraising has provided us with valuable resources to improve the quality of life for our residents.

“This donation highlights the strong community spirit and dedication to supporting local healthcare services in Dorrigo.

“The funds will be instrumental in ensuring that Highview’s frail aged residents receive the comfort and care they deserve.”

Highview, a part of Dorrigo Multi-Purpose Service, is dedicated to offering a comfortable and supportive environment for frail aged residents.
