Last October over 200 past and present hospital employeesgathered at the Ex Services Club for areunion 12 months in the making.
The evening, and the months leading up to it, presented the perfect opportunity for the organisers to do some fundraising.
It was decided early that all money raised overexpenses would be donated to the Hospital Auxiliary, and that amount has now been tallied at an impressive $5,068.
Reunion committee chairperson Maureen Simpfendorfer expressed her thanks to the generous Cootamundra community and the visitors on the night who supported the raffle.
“The public is always so supportive and so willing to help,” Mrs Simpfendorfer said.
She also thankedraffle coordinator Margaret Holder, and South West Fuel manager Rod Faulks for donating first prize.
Hospital Auxiliary president Jenny McClintock said the organisation was “thrilled” to receive the donation.
She thanked the reunion committee, along with South West Fuel, all the people who sold tickets, and everyone who bought them.
The funds will be put towards a hover mat, which assists with safely and comfortably moving larger patients.
Deputy nurse manager Aileen Buckley said the staff has wanted this piece of equipment for quite some time, and thanked all involved for the generous donation.
