Peninsula Villages is looking to repurpose 20-30 beds it no longer needs and has got the Rotary Club of Umina Beach on the job.
Due to residents moving into the new Pozieres Housing development, the beds from Jack Aldous house are no longer required.
The Board of Peninsula Villages Limited gave Rotary member Wayne Dowdle the task to rehome the beds.
Club President Bruce Croft said Dowdle had contacted the Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) which assisted disadvantaged communities and individuals in Australia and overseas.
“Wayne has made contact with RAWCS’ Health & Educational Equipment Repurposing Activity about donating these beds,” Croft said.
“This is a project of Rotary Zone eight which covers all Rotary Clubs in Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands.
“It was previously known as Donations in Kind that was run at Rotary District level.”
National Chairman Keith Roffey said the Health and Educational Equipment Repurposing Activity was a resource for Rotarians to help achieve goals, provide humanitarian aid, and make donations.
Roffey said the distribution centre accepted equipment that was in good working order like hospital beds, wheelchairs, shower chairs, and general medical consumables.
