Deniliquin Community’s Generosity Empowers Kurrajong Deniliquin to Enhance Accessibility

In the heart of Deniliquin, a spirit of generosity and community support shines brightly, making meaningful strides towards enhancing accessibility and comfort for those in need. The recent collaboration between the Rotary Club of Deniliquin, the Deniliquin Truck Show, and the Deniliquin & District Wall of Fame has brought forth a wave of gratitude from Kurrajong Deniliquin, an organisation dedicated to empowering individuals with disabilities.

Their joint contribution, totalling over $15,000, represents not just a financial gift but a profound investment in the well-being and mobility of the community. This remarkable donation will enable Kurrajong Deniliquin to acquire and install a ceiling hoist at their Napier St Centre, a pivotal addition that promises to improve the lives of their clients significantly.

Matthew Johnson, Coordinator of Kurrajong Lifestyle Choices – Deniliquin, expressed his heartfelt appreciation for the generous support received. He emphasised the transformative impact this donation would have on the individuals served by Kurrajong Deniliquin. “The ceiling hoist will have a huge impact on the people we support,” Johnson explained. “It allows each person to be transferred to a better and more comfortable position, which is safer for them. It will also be safer for support workers during the transfers.”

For Kurrajong, a not-for-profit organisation committed to enhancing the lives of individuals with disabilities, the ceiling hoist represents more than just equipment. It embodies freedom, dignity, and inclusion, offering practical solutions to everyday challenges their clients and caregivers face. With the generous donation from the Deniliquin community, acquiring such vital equipment would have been a manageable challenge for Kurrajong.

The collaboration between local organisations and community members underscores the power of collective action in creating positive change. It serves as a poignant reminder of the profound impact that can be achieved when individuals and groups unite for a common cause, rallying behind those in need.

As Kurrajong Deniliquin prepares to implement the ceiling hoist, they extend their deepest gratitude to the Rotary Club of Deniliquin, the Deniliquin Truck Show, and the Deniliquin & District Wall of Fame for their unwavering support. Their generosity exemplifies the compassion and unity that defines the Deniliquin community, reaffirming the belief that we can build a more inclusive and supportive society for all.
