Wauchope District Memorial Hospital’s Palliative Care Unit has received an amazing $13,120 donation.
The generous donation from Bago Tavern owners Peter and Judy Bugden will help furnish a carers room for overnight stays in the Palliative Care Unit.
Mr Bugden said even he was surprised by the size of the donation, made possible by the tavern’s Christmas raffle, which two years ago raised $4421 for two syringe drivers used to help manage pain.
“I really want to thank everyone who supported our raffle, from the businesses who donated prizes to those who bought tickets,” he said.
Acting Nurse Unit Manager Jodi Gallagher said she was humbled by the support and grateful for it.
“We have a wonderful, caring team in our Palliative Care Unit; we love what we do and are honoured to be part of a support network for our beautiful patients,” Ms Gallagher said.
