Ararat Rock­ers sup­port health ser­vice

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Ararat Rock­ers have made a do­na­tion to the East Grampians Health Ser­vice on­col­ogy depart­ment.

Ararat Rock­ers’ pres­i­dent Amanda Webb and vice pres­i­dent Gary Jenk­ins pre­sented a cheque for $800 to on­col­o­gist Dr Craig Car­den and on­col­ogy nurs­ing staff, the pro­ceeds from a rock and roll dance. More than 100 peo­ple at­tended the rock and roll dance at Alexandra Hall.

“We like to choose a char­ity each year we can do­nate the pro­ceeds to, and this year de­cided on the on­col­ogy depart­ment, be­cause we know that many peo­ple have fam­ily or friends who use the ser­vice,” Ms Webb said.

EGHS chief ex­ec­u­tive Nick Bush said the do­na­tion of $800 would help the health ser­vice pur­chase the most up-to-date equip­ment for the on­col­ogy depart­ment and of­fer out­pa­tients a sup­ported and com­fort­able en­vi­ron­ment.
