Comforter: Ottrey Lodge residents Velma Dean, Lorraine Matthes and Molly Norton receive knitted blankets from Barooga Lions Club, represented by Yvonne Laffan, Lorraine Koopman, Margaret Richardson and Nancy Hoskin.
Barooga Lions Club has donated 18 knitted blankets to the region’s most needy residents.
The service club on Friday took six blankets each to Ottrey House, Irvin House and Cobram District Hospital.
Lion Lorraine Koopman said the colourful annual gift was always well received in the winter months.
‘‘They love it. They have to get the best one first: I like this colour, no that one, like little children,’’ Ms Koopman laughed.
Ottrey Lodge activities and lifestyle officer Dianne Lindhe thanked the club for the ‘‘wonderful’’ gift.
‘‘It’s great for the residents and they love seeing people from the community,’’ Ms Lindhe said.
