Member for Mulgoa Tanya Davies MP presented a $1000 cheque to Kim Carter from St Clair Youth and Neighbourhood Team Inc. to help stage their ‘Live Life to the Full Luncheon' on 20 March 2013 during Seniors Week this year.
Ms Carter said that this was the fourth year she has been involved in the luncheon and she expects approximately 80 seniors and carers to attend.
Entertainment will include a local preschool choir, the Erskine Park High School band and dancers from Erskine Park Primary School.
“We like to involve local schools and organisations, the Seniors love it and it fosters a great sense of community” Ms Carter said.
Mrs Davies said that seniors make a tremendous contribution to our community through volunteering, mentoring and other activities.
“Seniors Week is a great opportunity to recognise the outstanding work that Seniors do and to show our appreciation to the oldest generation of Australians, who made this country what it is today” Mrs Davies said.
“I congratulate St Clair Youth and Neighbourhood Team Inc. and wish them every success for the luncheon.”
The NSW Government has allocated more than $188,000 in grants to communities across the State to recognize the outstanding contributions seniors make in the lives of their families and neighbourhoods.
NSW Seniors Week events will be held from 18 to 25 March 2013. For more information visit: www.nswseniorsweek.com.au.
