It was an almighty year for the Pambula District Hospital Auxiliary who have thanked sponsors and the community for their support.

Following the successful year of 2018, benefits have resulted in improving the standards of equipment at Pambula Hospital.

Most recently, the Auxiliary expressed their gratification towards Eden Bowls Ladies who held a charity day in November.

Both women and men bowlers from Eden, Merimbula, Tura Beach, Tathra and Bega participated in a range of activities.

The day was a huge success, fundraising close to $1600 which was presented to the Auxiliary for further purchases of equipment much needed for patients and staff usage at the Pambula District Hospital.

“The auxiliary is extremely grateful for the Eden ladies bowls section for their financial and moral support,” Auxiliary president Shirly Rixon said.

The Hospital Auxiliary also recently recieved a $500 sponsorship from the Pambula and District Community Bendigo Bank on their 10th Birthday Anniversary at Oaklands. The sponsorship was a result of Pambula resident Gary Harvey, who dedicated his lucky door prize of $500 to the Auxiliary.

The Auxiliary have received further ongoing financial contributions from the Foodworks Pambula Community tin and regular Friday evening meat raffles at the Royal Willows Hotel.

The Christmas raffle, organised by the Auxiliary was well supported by the Pambula, Eden and Merimbula communities.

The six winners included; a $100 car service voucher at Eden Toyota, won by Peter McKenzie. The second prize was a $100 car service voucher at Eden Conrad Ford which was won by A.Allan. The third prize drawn was a porcelain doll, won by R.Butterworth followed by two $50 Top Pub Pambula vouchers won by Jess Porter and Pauline Moulds. Toni Beazley was the lucky winner of a $40 car wash voucher at Eden Motor Group.

“Following a successful 2018 year, the Pambula District Hospital Auxiliary wishes to thank the auxiliary members, sponsors, community support and Merimbula News Weekly for the benefits that have resulted in improving the standards of equipment at Pambula Hospital,” Ms Rixon said.
