Both the Palliative Care and Oncology Units received $500 each towards new equipment to improve patient care and well-being.
Sadly after 36 years, the Lioness Club are disbanding due to a lack of new members and an ageing group. President Caroline Eden said that whilst she is saddened that the group will no longer continue, they have all made great friends and will remain in touch. “All good things eventually run their course and we’re happy that after nearly 40 decades of operation, we’ve been able to help our community in many ways”, said Mrs Eden.
Since 1998, the Lioness Club have donated over $13,000 to the West Gippsland Healthcare Group.
