Seasons Aged Care residents help wildlife organisation in Kallangur
Seasons Aged Care Kallangur residents have been busy knitting and sewing pouches and liners to help keep baby rescue animals warm for a local wildlife rescue group.
On November 23 they will get to meet some of the babies they’ve helped, when the ladies from Bribie & District Wildlife Rescue Inc come out to the community.
Seasons residents Mavis Ford, Ellen Fox, Nell Barr, Marlene Brittain and Valerie Nielsen will present the group with the pouches and liners they’ve been working on and all Seasons residents will be able to see the baby animals up close.
The Bribie & District Wildlife Rescue Inc Group rescues, treats, rears, rehabilitates and releases native wildlife from Bribie Island and around the Caboolture, Morayfield, Narangba and Redcliffe areas. They also raise public awareness of issues relating to native wildlife.
Seasons Aged Care’s Community Manager Janet Norman says the residents enjoy helping out the group and love hearing that their work is making a difference.
“Baby season has really hit hard this year and the group are experiencing an extremely busy time on the rescue front, with many native baby animals needing to be kept warm,” says Mrs Norman.
“Our residents are looking forward to meeting some of the animals they’ve helped and are looking forward to continuing to make these items for the rescue group.
To help their efforts, the residents are calling for donations of 100% pure wool to make the pouches plus old flannelette sheets and polar fleece to make the linings. These can be dropped into Seasons Aged Care Kallangur’s reception at 1321 Anzac Avenue, Kallangur.
