Hospital auxiliary donates recliners

TWO bright-red reclining lounges worth almost $2000 have taken pride of place at Gayndah Hospital.

The chairs, which cost $1950 and were purchased locally, were funded through donations from the Bendigo Bank, CWA ladies and Gayndah Development Association.

They were dedicated by the Gayndah Hospital Auxiliary on Tuesday morning.

The recliners will be used to assist in making hospital life more comfortable for patients and meet all health and safety regulations.

Gayndah Hospital Auxiliary president Marion Polzin extended the group's gratitude to those who had donated.

"I'd just like to thank all the organisations for their donations to make this purchase possible,” Mrs Polzin said.

Gayndah Hospital director of nursing Sue Coward thanked the auxiliary for their donation.

"I acknowledge and thank the Gayndah Hospital Auxiliary for this donation on behalf of the Gayndah Hospital staff,” she said.
