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.
