Li­ons sup­port nurs­ing home

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

A DONA­TION of $9700 was pre­sented to the Proser­pine Nurs­ing Home by the Whit­sun­day Li­ons this week.

Whit­sun­day Li­ons Club mem­bers Betty Wil­son and Lynda Bax­ter pre­sented a cheque to the nurs­ing home's co-or­di­na­tor Joy Forster at the res­i­dents meet­ing on Mon­day.

The dona­tion was to re­place the home’s pan dis­in­fec­tor, which is a crit­i­cal piece of equip­ment.

The equip­ment re­cently failed and the Li­ons were able to step in and help out in a big way.

As a reg­u­lar donor to the nurs­ing home, the Whit­sun­day Li­ons Club was happy to help with the home’s ur­gent need. The Whit­sun­day Li­ons Club is a part of Li­ons Clubs In­ter­na­tional, a net­work of vol­un­teers who work to­gether to an­swer the needs that chal­lenge com­mu­ni­ties.

HELP­ING HAND: Whit­sun­day Li­ons Club mem­bers Lynda Bax­ter and Betty Wil­son pre­sented a dona­tion to Proser­pine Nurs­ing Home co-or­di­na­tor Joy Forster on Mon­day.
