IT'S a sad day when you have to say goodbye to your local sports club; but members of one group kept their chins up when their declining numbers forced them to close their doors for good.

The dedicated team at the Midway Point Indoor Bowls Club chose to preserve the club’s legacy by using the leftover funds from their treasury to buy much-needed equipment for the South Eastern Community Care (SEC Care) Day Centres.

SEC Care Day Centre co-ordinator Kathy Maas said her team was thrilled with the donation of two portable frying pans.

“These frying pans will allow our volunteers to safely cook delicious snacks for our clients in the day centres,” Kathy said.

“This is something our volunteers have wanted for some time, so we are thrilled with the club’s generosity.

“We have three day centres, in Sorell, Brighton and Orford, and these pans will be able to travel around the groups, giving plenty of enjoyment (and yummy treats) as they go.”

SEC Care is a Tasmanian not-for-profit organisation that provides community care and social support to people of all ages.

 It has helped people live independently in their homes and communities for more than 45 years.
