Op shop happy to do­nate $2000

The Tatura Guardian - - News - By Declan Martin

Tatura Gen­er­a­tions Op Shop has do­nated $2000 to­wards the pur­chase of new state-of-the-art beds for Tatura Hospi­tal.

Gen­er­a­tions Op Shop man­ager Neville Crow pre­sented a cheque to the hospi­tal’s di­rec­tor of nurs­ing Jayne French who said it would go to­wards the hospi­tal’s goal of re­plac­ing its old beds.

‘‘The new beds are great at pre­vent­ing falls and ter­rific for staff be­cause the bed has a hy­draulic lift sys­tem al­low­ing it to be moved and down and can be locked in po­si­tion,’’ Ms French said.

The hospi­tal has been fundrais­ing since the start of the year and hopes to even­tu­ally re­place all 23 beds; so far eight new beds have found a home at the fa­cil­ity.

The new beds are val­ued at $4000 each.

Mr Crow said the Op Shop had been do­ing well in its new home on Ho­gan St, and more do­na­tions were planned be­fore the end of the year.
