‘What happens on the trip, stays on the trip’

There is only one rule when a group from the Knox Community venture out on the Arcare bus to the local shopping centre. That is, ‘what happens on the trip, stays on the trip’.

Recently, Betty had the whole table laughing at one of her jokes. There’s never any shortage of jokes when this group gets together.

After she enjoys her coffee, Betty pulls out her list of things she’s written down during the week and is off to buy some groceries. Others enjoy doing a spot of window shopping.

While it’s handy to have a regular shopping trip available on the Arcare bus, it is the socializing with her friends that is the best part for Betty.

‘It’s lovely to get all of my bits and pieces when we do our shopping at Stud Park, we have too much fun,’ Betty commented.

Yvonne agreed, ‘We have so much fun and it’s great to get to know the people from The Lodge at Arcare Knox.’
