$4000 Donated for much needed Laparoscopic equipment for the Surgical team. These instruments are a high priority and will allow the surgeons to perform less invasive procedures with smaller incisions and therefore allow for shorter recovery times.
$200 donation involves members preparing and delivering bags of books to the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital Obstetrics ward, where hospital staff supports the branch’s effort and deliver a bag of books, and literature about the importance of reading, to each mother as she leaves the hospital with her newborn. The goal is to encourage a love of reading at a very young age.
