60 Years!  That is the combined years of service that retiring volunteers Joan Brain, Sue Kendall, Shelley Kershaw and Jill Rehardt have given to the residents of Mary Potter Nursing Home.  These ladies have spent many hours over the years brightening the days of our residents and staff. They have treated everyone with respect and kindness and are an inspiration to us all. We will always be grateful for their contribution to The Forrest Centre.

Volunteers are worth their weight in gold. They share their time and talents without any financial compensation.  Our volunteers are involved in all kinds of activities such as arts and craft, bingo, board games, indoor bowls, reading, delivering morning tea, assisting at church services or simply having a chat with residents.  If you are considering volunteering and sharing smiles and laughter with our residents appeals to you, please contact us at The Forrest Centre on 6932 3011.
