BIGGEN­DEN Hospi­tal Aux­il­iary has high hopes to buy equip­ment to ben­e­fit its el­derly pa­tients from the pro­ceeds of its tombola.

RN and aux­il­iary mem­ber Linda Fuller said the Sara St­edy was mo­bil­ity-pro­mot­ing aid that en­cour­aged more mo­bile pa­tients and res­i­dents to stand up in­de­pen­dently.

“I saw the ap­pa­ra­tus in use in re­hab in Bund­aberg while I was un­der­tak­ing a course,” Ms Fuller said.

“I felt it was an ideal piece of equip­ment for our hospi­tal, es­pe­cially with our 11 long-stay aged pa­tients,” she said.

The Sara St­edy costs $2100.

The tombola will be held at the Me­mo­rial Hall on Satur­day, with the doors open­ing at 8.30am.

Ad­mis­sion is $2 and
