At Royal Freemasons, a number of our aged residents are without family and unlikely to receive a gift this Christmas.
But with your help, we can change that.
DONATE TODAY to our Christmas Gift Appeal so these residents are surprised with a beautiful gift this Christmas Day!
Susan, one of aged care residents, was overwhelmed to receive a surprise gift from our staff last Christmas.
“I was very surprised. It brightened my day no end,” says Susan.
Susan fondly remembers past Christmases spent with her daughter and parents over a festive roast dinner, but those days are sadly gone.
“There’s not much left of my family,” says Susan. “Both of my parents have died, and I lost my only daughter to cancer last year. She was 48 years old, and I miss her enormously. So, on Christmas Day I tend to get a bit miserable,” she says.
Royal Freemasons Lifestyle Coordinator Kim Jose says, “Susan got tears in her eyes when she received the gift and said ‘Is that for me? I’ve never had anything so thoughtful done for me.’”
“Just one little gift can make the biggest difference in their world. It puts the biggest smile on their face and lets them know they are loved and cared for.”
Will you help us reach our fundraising target of $20,000 so every one of our residents in need has a present to unwrap on Christmas Day?
