Grandparents Caring for Grandchildren – Xmas in July

Moonah Rotary Members

The Annual Grandparents Xmas in July Lunch could not be possible with out the continued support of the many Rotarian volunteers and sponsors.A combined project for the Rotary Clubs of Moonah, Glenorchy and Claremont  and in its seventh year it provides a wonderful day out for the many Grandparents who care full time for their grandchildren. Often struggling themselves with financial and health difficulties a day out where they are can enjoy companionship and laughter is a welcome event.   The children are entertained by a variety of craft activities as well as Balloon Animals and Face painting. Thank you once again to Glenview Nursing home. Each year they have given their time to provide a fabulous Xmas Lunch. This year they and the volunteers  had the extra challenge of the lift not working and having to bring all the food and equipment up four flights of stairs! Of course Xmas has to have a visit from Santa who with much “Ho Ho Hoing” gave  all the children and grandparents  toys and gifts. Thank you to Toy world for their ongoing support. Everyone left with big smiles and full tummies looking forward to next year’s event.
