Deniliquin Community’s Generosity Empowers Kurrajong Deniliquin to Enhance Accessibility

A heartfelt thank you to the Rotary Club of Deniliquin, the Deniliquin Truck Show, and the Deniliquin & District Wall of Fame for their extraordinary generosity! Their generous donation of over $15,000 will empower Kurrajong Deniliquin to acquire and install a ceiling hoist at our Napier St Centre, significantly improving the mobility and comfort of our clients.

Matthew Johnson, Coordinator of Kurrajong Lifestyle Choices – Deniliquin, expressed his deep appreciation, highlighting this donation’s transformative impact on the individuals we serve.

“The ceiling hoist will have a huge impact on the people we support.

It allows each person to be transferred to a better and more comfortable position, which is a safer process for them. It will also be safer for support workers during the transfers.

Kurrajong is a not-for-profit organisation, and without such a generous donation, we would not have been able to purchase this piece of equipment.”
