Aged Care Narratives » Superhero fundraiser at Arcare Parkinson
February 3, 2020
Written by Jamie Loh
With capes flying and arms high in the air, clients and team members at Arcare Parkinson were treated to superhero after superhero today.
Superwoman, Superman and The Flash were in the house to host a Superhero Fundraiser for the Bushfire Appeal.
And it’s not every day you see a famous celebrity at the Arcare Parkinson aged care residence.
But the clients all had a great time and some even asked the superheroes for a flying demonstration!
The caped crusaders were more than happy to oblige as they zoomed around the lounge room with capes flapping in the wind.
Together, they managed to raise a whopping amount of $320 for the Bushfire Appeal.
It was a super heroic effort so thank you to all!
Our Superhero Fundraiser for the Bushfire Appeal was a fun experience for all.
But more importantly, it was a great way to get the clients and team members involved in doing their part for the ongoing bushfires.
And we are all very grateful for the firefighters and volunteers – the real-life superheroes of our time.
