LAST month the purpose-built Burger Centre, designed for over 65s, in Randwick, celebrated a very successful open day with a wonderful array of activities showcasing its services to the wider community.
In fact, it was described as an open day like no other as the Burger Centre team pulled out what the community called an “unravel of the best-kept secret”.
There was a feeling of warmth, laughter, and a special vibe in the air as senior members of the wider community and their families were welcomed.
Some of the feedback received was, “You gave us so much more than we anticipated”, “We had no idea that the centre exists at our doorsteps”, and “I wish I brought my mum earlier”.
There was plenty of live music, massages for clients, a Tai Chi session, art expression, amazing treats and of course, laughter all day as the centre showcased its programs and facilities on offer.
Current and new clients came together to celebrate what the Burger Centre is all about – socialisation, wellness, connection and respite while creating a sense of community and togetherness.
As the need for more social connections increases in our aging population, it’s extremely important to have an organisation like the Burger Centre, which enables our community to live purposeful, independent, vibrant, and socially connected lives.
The centre’s open day was supported by the Mayor of Randwick Dylan Parker, Waverley Council, Rabbi Mendel Kastel and Member for Coogee Marjorie O’Neill.
The Burger Centre continues to be a buzzing hub for seniors with many new programs on offer, including monthly concerts and outings, virtual travels, wellness classes and of course many special events.
