Our residents and staff are a thoughtful bunch. We are so delighted when residents or team members come up with unique ideas to give back to our communities and support those in need.

The Carramar Residential Aged Care Facility in Leeton has been under lockdown for some time as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and to protect the vulnerable residents there. Our RFBI Leeton Masonic Village residents and team decided they wanted to do something to brighten their day. Together, the village created handmade, colourful and vibrant birds that can be hung from the ceiling and provide fun and delight to residents in the hospital.

Pictured are some of the Carramar residents with the little birds that our residents designed for them, made out of feathers, wool, cardboard and colourful diamantes.

Carramar residents commented “aren’t the birds beautiful”.

The crafts offered countless benefits as an activity in our village – they were a lot of fun to make and brought our residents together to do something creative, and also put a smile on the faces of those living in the hospital wing.
