Club 88’s donation to the hospital’s oncology unit will provide much-needed comfort for patients which, a hospital spokesperson said, is “vital during the course of treatment.”
The club raised the funds through the sale of discount shopping voucher bookelts. Local businesses provided a discount for shoppers who purchased the $10 books from Club 88 members.
Club88 members Helen van Heuven and Beryl Tyson visited the Oncology Unit to formally present the money to unit Manager Anny Byrne.
