Thank you Carinya Auxiliary – Helping Hand

Thank you Carinya Auxiliary

After decades of service, we are saying thank you and farewell to the Carinya Auxiliary, who will formally cease their activities from June 2022.

Through their dedication and generosity, the Auxiliary have raised and donated $129,176 to Carinya, our home in Clare. Over the years, they have raised funds for equipment purchases, furniture, garden improvements and so much more. Many of the features of the home, particularly in the outdoor areas, were donated by the Auxiliary and will be enjoyed and appreciated by residents and visitors for years to come.

The Auxiliary’s final donation will go towards the purchase of a Tovertafel for the Memory Support Unit. Based on scientific research, Tovertafel is an interactive projector that uses light, colour, and music to stimulate, physical, social, and cognitive activity. This wonderful gesture will enhance the lives of people living with dementia.

We are incredibly grateful to past and current members of the Auxiliary for their extraordinary contribution to Carinya. They truly reflect Helping Hand’s values of compassion, respect, excellence, and community.

The residents, staff, volunteers, and families will continue to benefit from your fundraising legacy, for years to come. Thank you.
