The Men's Shed had made 2 boards with a variety of small common devices for the Coffs Harbour Hospital as a donation.Tom Skinner reported today that both boards for the rehabilitation unit at the Hospital to train fine motor skills of stroke patients are completed. Warren Sangers wife Jane has kindly painted both boards in bright colourful scenes.
A big thankyou to all involved in this project.

This has been donated to the Cex Car Club towards their major fund raising drive in the community for the local Oncology Dept. at our local hospital.
Another way the Coffs Mens Shed helps support our local community.
The Coffs Shed was commissioned by the Coffs Harbour Health Campus to make a Tactile Tool Box to be used by people living with dementia. The material was donated by Coffs Harbour Hardwoods and all the guys pitched in to build this worthy project.
Note: Sensory stimulation for Alzheimer’s patients and people with other forms of dementia has been shown to decrease agitation and restlessness, as well as improve sleep. These symptoms are very common in most forms of dementia, and certainly in people with Alzheimer’s, so sensory stimulation translates as improved quality of life for the patient as well as for the caregiver.
One of the shed's latest projects: Playground boat built for 'Caterpillar House' (local Child Care Centre). Building material supplied by Coffs Harbour Hardwoods, built by 'Ross' and assisted by other guys from our shed.
Al is arguably our most fastidious craftsman. Many of his creations have brought big money in sales or as competition prizes
