RLOA clients spread happiness and colour around Beaudesert

WONGABURRA residents were gifted a splash of colour on Wednesday when clients from Beaudesert’s Rural Lifestyle Options Association presented them with hand-drawn paintings.

As part of its Feel Good February campaign, representatives from RLOA visited the aged care home on Brisbane Street presented colourful paintings that had been lovingly created by RLOA clients.

Clients Jackie Greene, Kylie Yates and Alex Williams handed over the paintings to some very happy patients who were keen to see the paintings hung in their rooms. 

The visit was the culmination of a Colour Me Happy painting workshop RLOA organised as part of its Feel Good February campaign, aimed at spreading random acts of kindness throughout Beaudesert.

RLOA marketing and communications manager Nick Power said the campaign helped promote mental health awareness while spreading good deeds in the community.

Other activities RLOA clients organised included a free lemonade stand outside William Street office, an iced water stand, donating magazines to Beaudesert Hospital and giving away free flowers and balloons.

Mr Power said the clients loved being part of Feel Good February.

“We tried to do one activity a week to keep the momentum alive and the feedback we got back was overwhelming,” he said. 

“Initially when we first started there was only a few clients involved, but by the time when we organised the lemonade stand we had almost 30 clients just out the front and enjoying the fun.”
