Seeking men who Do Care

Colac’s South West Do Care volunteers gathered for their annual general meeting. Pictured from left are Wal Facey, Sid Rosevear, president John Skewes, Jim Delorenzo and Bill Perkins.

A COLAC group is looking for men to visit senior citizens.

South West Do Care members visit and provide group activities to frail, aged, isolated people, those with disabilities, carers and people of non-English speaking backgrounds.

Executive officer Chris Modra said the group would have a membership drive to recruit more men.

Mrs Modra said the group had a policy to “match men with men and women with women” for home visits and activities.

The group had its annual meeting last week and re-elected John Skewes as president, with Tony Mahoney as vice-president and Scott Johnstone as treasurer.

Trinity College principal Tim O’Farrell was the guest speaker at the City Bowls Blub event, and spoke about an education trip to the United Kingdom he took this year.

Mrs Modra said Mr O’Farrell “spoke warmly of the connection the Trinity Year 10 students have with the Do Care shopping assistance program”.
