This activity is being delivered by the Community Services Committee. Upton House is the adult psychiatric inpatient unit located at Eastern 2 Health’s Box Hill Hospital. The unit has 25 beds, divided between an Intensive Care Area and the Low Dependence Unit.  The current exercise equipment is in very poor shape and in some cases has been removed. The staff have advised us that by having activities to do, this aids the patient’s recovery.  As a public hospital there is just not the funding for these items. The request is to provide the ward with the following recreational items. -a guitar -a table tennis table -a tread mill (commercial grade), -exercise bike (commercial grade) - a pool table (3/4 size).”  
Thanks to Rotary Hawthorn for asking us to join them in this endeavour for a grant from RAWCS (Rotary Australia World Community Service) for this project.
