Dubbo base hospital supports qld flood appeal

Dubbo Base Hospital Staff have today donated $2,239.95 to the Queensland flood appeal raised through a cake stall and raffle.

The fundraising effort was arranged at short notice following the floods that have devastated Queensland recently.

Charlotte Orchard, Nursing Unit Manager G Ward got the ball rolling and was quickly supported by other Nursing, Catering and other staff who had donated cakes and raffle prizes. The Dubbo Hospital Pink Ladies also lent a hand to sell raffle tickets and the donated cakes.

“This was all arranged very quickly and for this amount to be realised is an indication of how serious the situation is,” said Ms Charlotte Orchard.

“I really want to thank all of the staff and Pink Ladies who cooked, donated and otherwise helped on the day to get this amount together,” she said.
