SINGING, a hearty lunch and friendship — the efforts of volunteers at the Hills Day Club have not gone unnoticed.
On Monday, Seven Hills state Liberal MP Mark Taylor presented the Seven Hills club for its contribution to the seniors community.
The recognition was part of the Local Seniors Achievement Awards Program.
The volunteer-run club meets each Monday as place for seniors to keep active and entertained when they take part in activities such as mobility exercises and enjoy lunch.
The seniors are entertained by singers, dancers and comedians as well as the traditional session of bingo.
Club members who can no longer drive are also provided with a complimentary bus service.
Seven Hills RSL Club marketing manager Jessica Reader said the club helped keep seniors active but also provided companionship “and a place to forget their worries’’.
The club meets each Monday between 9am and 1.10pm. It cost $5 for activities with morning tea and lunch.
