Welfare

Gaythorne RSL’s Welfare Section volunteers regularly make home, hospital and nursing home visits to veterans and War Widows. We have three teams of volunteers undertaking weekly visits around the Brisbane metropolitan area. Our volunteers are happy to visit new people for a chat and/or to pass on information in relation to community services available to them. We have one team of female Welfare Officers and two teams of male Welfare Officers. All of our volunteers in this area have undertaken the Department of Veterans’ Affairs Welfare Course and have been vetted by the Police.

MITCHELTON DAY CLUB

The Mitchie Day Club (Mitchelton), is a non-profit social club for local seniors.
Each week members and volunteers come together to take part in gentle Tai Chi exercises followed by stimulating and fun activities, morning tea and a light lunch.  The program varies each week and can include card and board games, indoor bowls, live entertainment, fashion parades and bus trips. This is all included in the admission cost of $6 for each meeting.

The friendly team of volunteers take great pleasure in being able to enrich the lives of the local seniors.  However, more volunteers are needed so that the club can reach its full potential.  If you can spare one day a week/fortnight/month to meet up with a great group of people in the Mitchelton area then please phone Jocelyn 0419737362 or 33557151 during office hours.

The Day Club is run each Wednesday from 10.00 A.M. to 2.00 P.M. at the Seventh Day Adventist Hall, corner of Blackwood Street and Ruby Street Mitchelton. The  390, 361, 397, 398 and 367 buses stop nearby.  Mitchelton train station is only a short distance away.

The club is sponsored by Gaythorne RSL Club and supported by The Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
