Mossman Buffs dig deep for aged
THE Mossman Hospital Aged Care Unit was the worthy recipient of two wheelchairs earlier this week, kindly donated by the Mossman Branch of the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffalos - or the Mossman Buffs.
The local branch of philanthropists put the money together to purchase and donate the wheelchairs to the unit because it had never had dedicated wheelchairs of its own before - instead relying on wheelchairs from around the hospital.
“If we find a good cause, we’ll support it,” said member and Knight (President) of the Mossman RAOB Jim Mulholland.
“We try to support things locally.
“We help any community, and the Mossman Buffs try to support Mossman.”
The international network of RAOB is committed to supporting those in need through philanthropy.
“We raise our own money among our own people,” said Mr Mulholland.
“These are the first wheelchairs that this ward has ever had. And Mossman Buffs were the first to donate them.”
Mr Mulholland explained that the RAOB as a non-religious and non-prejudiced organisation were there to help. “We need the local people to tell us what they need.”
The Mossman Buffs have also previously donated blood analysing equipment to the Mossman Hospital and other good causes.
Mr Mulholland encouraged anyone with a good cause to contact RAOB Mossman secretary Harry Fischer on 0428 981 375.
