History of RM Begg Kyneton1959
RM Begg aged care home’s proud history is steeped in the philanthropic legacy of Miss Ray McGregor Begg, who prior to her death in 1956, established the ‘Ray M. Begg Home for the Aged’ committee.
A teacher and the owner of a private school in High Street, Kyneton, Miss Begg’s intention was to leave a substantial bequest in her Will to further support and advance aged care opportunities and services for the local community. To support this endeavour, she left the balance of her estate to the newly formed committee – that is, the weatherboard schoolhouse (that still stands proudly in place today) and the land surrounding it.
In the years after her death, Miss Begg’s vision of a ‘home for the elderly’ was brought to life by the Kyneton Lions Club, supported by a groundswell of community support.
We sincerely thank all donors for their generous support, enabling us to provide exceptional care to our residents now and in the future at RM Begg.
