Helping Men’s Shed support Balmain Hospital
Sydney Motorway Corporation helped the Breakfast Point Men’s Shed build numerous items for rehabilitation patients at Balmain Hospital with a grant to buy materials and supplies.
The Shed members used the grant funding to build and paint 20 step boxes, three storage containers for the step boxes mounted on castors, and 10 holders for the Hospital’s “count clickers”. These will be used for physiotherapy treatment at Balmain Hospital. The Shed first developed a step box prototype to ensure the quality was of a high safety standard, which was endorsed by the Hospital.
The initiative aligns with Sydney Motorway Corporation’s sustainability objectives to improve health and safety outcomes for the community, while the concept of the Men’s Shed is also consistent with Sydney Motorway Corporation’s aim to connect and build positive communities.
With Sydney Motorway Corporation’s support, we hope our boxes will benefit thousands of patients at the hospital over many years.”
