IF you hadn’t heard shouts of “bingo” for a while, you were going to hear them again soon because Centacare centres had started to re-open their doors across south east Queensland last Monday.
Greg Wright spent the Monday with Centacare Aspley, one of the six centres to re-open that day, and said he had a great day.
“I’m glad to be back,” he said.
“We played golf, we played bingo, and the quiz; we had lunch and a nice morning tea.”
Mr Wright said while it had been a little difficult staying socially distanced from everyone and that it was a shame not to be able to play pool because of restrictions, that it had been good to see his friends again and to see the Centacare staff too.
Merle Adams spent the day with Aspley too and said she it was great to spend the day with “a lovely crowd of people”.
It was Tamika Maekawa-Wilcox’s first day at the centre and she said she enjoyed the activities and that they were great mental stimulation.
She offered a big thank you to the staff for putting it all together.
