Walk of Fame scheme launched at Lucas centre

AS Ballarat’s newest community health centre at Lucas nears completion, members of the community are being given the chance to purchase a paver, which will be laid at the entrance. 

The Walk of Fame initiative was launched yesterday by federal member for Ballarat, Catherine King. 

Ms King laid her own paver while praising the centre which will continue Ballarat Health Care’s commitment to local health. 

Starting at $100, the pavers are inscribed with any name or message and will be a prominent feature of the new Ballarat Community Health Centre.

Ms King said the initiative would ultimately support the work of Ballarat Community Health. 

“By purchasing an inscribed paver, members of the community can support Ballarat Community Health’s efforts to boost and promote good community health,” Ms King said. “Once complete, this new purpose-built centre at Lucas will include clinical services, health promotion, alcohol and other drug support, mental health, counselling and youth services.”

Nicholson Construction is quickly constructing the new centre which is expected to open by the middle of the year.
