The donation came from proceeds raised at the first annual Open Arms Award Ceremony which was held last year.

Maple House officials have indicated that they intend to purchase some much needed household items, as well as wheelchair straps and other special equipment, with the donation.

Joy White, manager of Maple House, expressed appreciation for the donation and the continued recognition and support that Rotaract Blue has provided.

‘Rotaract Blue is happy that the Open Arms programme has been successful and that the club is able to assist Maple House,’ said Rotaract Blue member Rene Shortridge.

‘We are hoping that the programme reaches further heights so that we are able to extend more support where it is needed.’

The previously postponed Open Arms Family Fun Day event will now take place on 21 February at the Airport Park.
