Giving back to the community through funds
MUNDUBBERA HOSPITAL AUXILIARY
IN THE Mundubbera community, the hospital auxiliary has provided necessary equipment and furnishings to the hospital.
The hospital raises funds with several events organised for people to attend. The next event scheduled in the calendar is the Healthy Ageing Expo on April 21 from 9am–noon at the Mundubbera Shire Hall.
It’s free entry, a multidraw raffle and free morning tea. Three speakers will address the audience, including solicitor Charlotte Carrodus, Mundubbera Sergeant Daniel Clarke (who will be talking about cyber crime and safety) and wellknown personality Kim McCosker, who has written more than 30 cook books and is an extremely good chef.
She will also demonstrate her cooking prowess.
Bingo night is coming up on June 17 with around 30–40 people expected to come and play the game. It will take place on the veranda of the aged care residence with everyone invited to come along.
We had an event for Sally Wells, who was in the auxiliary for 50 years. She is still part of the committee and of the hospital auxiliary. She was a young nurse when she joined and we had a dinner in her honour.
We have a Mother’s Day raffle which will be drawn at the Mundubbera Show and the prize is a handmade garden seat.
An ovarian cancer high tea at the Mundubbera Bowls Club will be held on Saturday, October 21.
The hospital auxiliary raises funds for the hospital. So far we’ve put up curtains and the bathroom has just been renovated to a new acute ward.
They are also planning to put up curtains in all individual rooms this year. The auxiliary has raised thousands of dollars for equipment that the government doesn’t provide.
Next meeting is April 20 starting at 7pm at the Mundubbera Shire Hall.
