Rix’s Creek Care
Rix’s Creek Mine has got behind the Singleton Ourcare’s
Art and Craft Program with a very generous donation of
Not-for-profit Ourcare Services is using the funds to purchase new supplies
for its community art and craft program which was set up for the aged and
people with disabilities. The program is an important form of therapy and
social interaction for participants.
Donated by workers at Rix’s Creek Mine and the mine’s parent company The
Bloomfield Group, the funds will lift the Ourcare Services art and craft
program to another level, with a view to works being displayed at Singleton
Library and by local businesses. Singleton artist Lynne Bailey, who donates
her time to run the art and craft sessions, said so much more could be
achieved with the additional funds.
Ourcare Services Coordinator Tracey Dagg said they are truly grateful
for the donation.
“Our core objective is supporting our clients so that they can continue living
independently in the community. Art and craft are simple but important outlets
for those we help. It’s so rewarding to see our clients engaging through these
mediums and benefiting from senses of meaning and achievement.” Tracey
Rix’s Creek Mine Manager Luke Murray said everyone at the mine was happy
to see the funds go to good use. “We make a point of backing good
community causes and the Ourcare Services art and craft program is a
wonderful community investment.”
