With the festive season upon us, the gifts are rolling in for Seniors Card holders with Baulkham Hills State Liberal MP David Elliott urging older residents to utilise discounts on electricity, home and hardware, groceries, internet and more.
The savings assist seniors who spent months at home this year during the COVID-19 pandemic to protect their physical health.
“Christmas is about connecting with family and friends, so mobile and internet deals are an ideal way to help seniors safely spread Christmas cheer and check in on loved ones,” Mr Elliott said.
The Christmas dazzlers aim to help older citizens live healthier, happier, more active and affordable lives.
“Small savings can make a big difference in the lives of seniors, especially around Christmas time,” Mr Elliott said.
“I encourage seniors to use these discounts to embrace the holidays whether it’s getting out in the yard with savings from Mitre 10 or cooking up a feast thanks to Woolworths and IGA discounts.”
Acting Minister for Seniors Geoff Lee said the discounts are part of the NSW Government’s ongoing commitment to supporting the senior members of our community.
“Seniors are deserving and respected members of our communities who are invaluable in their commitment to volunteering, caring roles and sharing knowledge. The NSW Government will continue to create opportunities that reward older people and support them in living fulfilling, active and healthy lives,” Mr Lee said.
“Cost of living can be a challenge for older people and we want our 1.7 million NSW Seniors Card holders to get the best possible benefits with discounts and special offers from over 7000 businesses across NSW.”
