Rotary Club of Ballarat

Biggest Morning Tea Luncheon 27th May 2021 Gallery

Our Club met last Thursday to raise money to support the

Cancer Council's Biggest Morning Tea fundraiser.It was really pleasing the level of support with forty-five members

and guests attending to listen to our Guest speaker of the day,Simone Noelker, Manager of the BRICC Wellness Centre.

Simone spoke of the work of the Wellness Centre being a place designed as a welcoming retreat for patients and carers. Regardless of where a patient is having treatment, they are welcome to use the Wellness Centre and its programs. With the needs of the patient the number one priority, the Wellness Centre has been created to be more home-like than a typical hospital setting. It has comfortable couches and chairs, television, fireplace, kids play area, reading material and kitchen facilities where patients and visitors can make a cup of coffee, heat up their lunch or relax.

Patients and families are welcome to use the centre before, during and after appointments and can use the centre to relax, meet with others or attend a wide range of wellness programs. All programs are free for patients.
