Kincumber Village presented The Rotary Club of Kincumber with a $1,000 donation recently in recognition of its work and dedication to the local community.

The Rotary Club of Kincumber, in partnership with Kincumber Village, delivered a Christmas Concierge service this December, assisting seniors and pensioners with their shopping, taking groceries to cars, trolley returns and more.

The service will continue on a regular basis in 2021 and aims to make everyday shopping even more convenient.

The Rotary Club of Kincumber supports a variety of initiatives, including the Kincumber Neighbourhood Centre Food Pantry, which has seen a spike in demand since the COVID pandemic hit.

Shoppers can donate to the food pantry drive this Christmas, by purchasing canned and non-perishable goods with their weekly shop and popping it in the donation trolley at Kincumber Village on selected days, or dropping their donation into Kincumber Neighbourhood Centre, located behind the shopping centre.

Items needed for the community food pantry include Christmas cake or pudding, mince pies, long-life custard, tinned fruit, biscuits, pretzels, crackers, juice, tea and coffee, cereal, spreads, pasta, noodles, chips, napkins, bon bons, drinks and gift cards.

Kincumber Village Centre Manager, Laura Fehlberg, said the centre was committed to making a difference in the local community.

“We’re proud to support our local community partners that make an enormous contribution to the wellbeing of our customers in Kincumber and surrounding suburbs,” she said.

“The great community spirit shown by so many organisations, schools and individuals within the local area is something I’m grateful to be part of.”

Rotary Club of Kincumber President, Bruce Dent, thanked Kincumber Village for their generous donation and said it will help support the Club’s initiative of collecting food from Coles Second Bite Centre in Penrith for distribution to the community.

“Operating the Christmas Concierge has been a most rewarding exercise with lots of laughter and good cheer as well as heartfelt donations of food into the food trolley,” he said.
