The newly formed Wyong Women’s Shed completed its first community charitable endeavour on September 16 when members donated some handmade fiddle mats to a Wyee nursing home.
Women’s Shed member, Jane Miller, said she and other members were welcomed with open arms by staff at the Bethshan Gardens Nursing Home when they delivered the 16 fiddle mats to residents.
The mats were created by member, Colette Burton, who said she purposely created the mats to combine a number of different textures to provide some stimulation for residents with dementia, Alzheimer’s or sensory issues.
“Wyong Women’s shed has an aim to create a better world for someone else and we look forward to making more donations again in the future,” Miller said.
