Earlier this month, the kind and generous members of Kurri Rotary Sunrise gifted our residents and staff at RFBI Kurri Kurri Masonic Village a Tovertafel (Magic Table). The table was gifted at a reception hosted at the village and attended by The Rotary Club of Kurri Kurri Sunrise Inc members and representatives of businesses who helped to raise the $19,000 for the table and software, Mayor Bob Pynset, and members of the RFBI team.

The table’s colourful games, sensors and sounds mesmerised residents during a demonstration earlier this year. The residents were so absorbed in the ease of operation, even for our residents with dementia, and the benefits are many.

Ann James from The Rotary Club of Kurri Kurri Sunrise Inc was proactive in sourcing the funds to gift our residents the Tovertafel. Rotary, local businesses, and the community pulled together to raise the funds needed, with the additional help from a grant from Rotary Foundation.

Despite the challenges of this year, they were able to make it happen and our residents are now benefiting from their amazing gift, which has advanced our Leisure & Lifestyle program at the village.
