Brethren take to the fairways to fund special chair

CONTINUITY 242 Lodge has swung into action on the golf course, raising sufficient funds for the purchase a bariatric chair.

The chair was presented to the Biggenden Hospital Auxiliary for use in the multi-purpose health service last Thursday.

Continuity Lodge's Alan Williams said the money raised by a golf day arranged by the Dallarnil Lodge was supported by the Hand Heart Pocket $4$ scheme.

"Donations of time and money were also received from the Biggenden Golf Club and community members,” he said.

Bariatric designed chairs cater for the larger person and features increased weight capacities, heavy duty supports and wider widths to fit the persons' needs.
