More than $6k raised

Matamata Chronicle - - Opinion/news -

The Pohlen Hos­pi­tal Garage Sale was held last Satur­day morn­ing and what a mar­vel­lous event it was.

What started as a bit of a clean out around the hos­pi­tal grew into a garage sale of epic pro­por­tions.

On be­half of both the hos­pi­tal board and the foun­da­tion can I say thank you to the many peo­ple who do­nated good qual­ity saleable items, we re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated your think­ing of Pohlen.

To those who helped setup at the crack of dawn and those who helped sell all the items; thank you. There was not much left I as­sure you.

Mata­mata bak­ers are in a class of their own and the huge amount of do­nated bak­ing was sold within the hour. Thank you Daisies for your fab­u­lous help in that depart­ment.

Matthew and Sheree Hart from the New World su­per­mar­ket; thank you for the sausage siz­zle you so gen­er­ously pro­vided and cooked!

I would like to of­fer a spe­cial thank you to the Pohlen staff who gave their time to co-or­di­nate, col­lect and then sort and sell all man­ner of items, we are so grate­ful for all your as­sis­tance and en­thu­si­asm.

The Pohlen Foun­da­tion Trust re­ally does ap­pre­ci­ate the com­mu­nity spirit shown.

I can re­port that we have raised about $6500 from the garage sale which will en­able us to re­place the 13 old [and fail­ing] tele­vi­sions with brand new ones.

We will also in­stall Wi-Fi through­out the hos­pi­tal – a job well done and what a great team we had.

Thank you one and all.
