South Burnett Care in Kingaroy now has a new multi-purpose home cinema system thanks to a $3000 donation from Rotary.
Rotary District 9620 and the Kingaroy Rotary Club each put in $1500 to make the project a reality.
Murray Johnston, from Kingaroy Rotary, said South Burnett Care planned to use the audio-visual display system for activities with clients as well as staff training.
Rotary will also be able to use it during their Monday night club meetings which are held in the same room at the Avoca Street complex.
“We will be able to use it for people who cannot attend our meetings or for guest speakers. They will be able to Zoom in,” Murray said.
The system includes a screen and a ceiling-mounted high-definition digital projector.
A South Burnett Care spokesperson said the audio-visual equipment would greatly benefit the organisation’s clients, who include the aged, frail, people with a disability and their caregivers.
It will also provide IT training opportunities for disadvantaged youth and young adults who are currently under the care of the centre.
The viewing screen can be electronically raised or lowered, as necessary.
