The residents and their friends at Loreto Home of Compassion have been making Rosary Beads for 15 years. An afternoon tea party was held this week to celebrate this milestone. Over the years the Rosary Beads have been sent to Missions in Australia and overseas, gifted to Wagga Wagga City Council and a set was sent to the Pope. Many local residents of Wagga also have and use a set of these rosary beads. Well done!
Barbara Baikie, representing the Hall Rotary Club (ACT) presented Evan Robertson with a donation to fund the purchase of a sofa bed for The Forrest Centre Hospice. We are very grateful to the Club for their generosity.
We at the Forrest Centre are excited to announce that Loreto Home of Compassion and Mary Potter Nursing Home have been selected to be recipients of some of the funds raised by the Miss Wagga Wagga Quest. We will be sure to let you know when their fundraising activities are happening and encourage you to participate.
