Members of the Friends of CGHS Auxiliary saw first-hand where their fundraising work goes when they visited Sale Hospital.
The auxiliary’s hard working members raise funds throughout the year and their last donation of almost $18,000 saw CGHS purchase two wireless Welch Allyn Monitors for the Surgical Ward, a simulator baby for Learning Services and a vaccine fridge for the Emergency Department.
Members saw the benefits of their donation when they visited the respective wards where the equipment is being used.
CGHS chief executive, Frank Evans, said it was important for the auxiliary to see the result of its hard work. “These recent pieces of equipment will certainly be appreciated by our patients and staff,” Mr Evans said.
Pictured are auxiliary members with CGHS Manager Learning Services Sue Askew and Surgical Ward Nurse Unit Manager Gary McMillan along with Hugh Davies and Ray Jago from the Sale City Band who contributed $415 from last year’s Carols by Candlelight event.
The auxiliary will again benefit from this year’s Carols on Tuesday 15 December in the Sale Botanical Gardens.
