News travels fastâ€¦Toowoomba Hospice was delighted to receive their new bed linen from theÂ Toowoomba Prostate Cancer Support GroupÂ who heard they had received 6 new beds recently.
Mr Doug Meiklejohn – Treasurer of the Toowoomba Prostate Cancer Support Group, said one of their members was aware that some new beds had recently been donated to the Hospice so they contacted Graham Barron â€œWe were wanting to donate some money towards new bedding for their new beds and thought this would be a lovely idea especially with the Hospice being promoted as a â€˜Homelike Environment.â€™ As we know when people do buy a new bed; most of the time they will purchase some new bedding to go with it which makes it that bit more specialâ€
Toowoomba Hospice Chairman Mr Graham Barron OAM was delighted with the offer â€œWhen the Toowoomba Prostate Cancer Support Group called, I was delighted, thinking how lovely this would be for our clients. This is just another great example of the wonderful partnerships we have in the community and thank them sincerely for thinking of the Hospice especially our Clients.â€
The Toowoomba Prostate Cancer Support Group meets at St Anthony’s Community Centre 3 Memory Street, Harristown on the third Tuesday of the month, 5.30pm for 6.00pm meeting. The Groupâ€™s aims are to help each other, discuss shared experiences and learn more about the disease and how to manage it.
When handing over their donation, Mr Paul Lucas â€“ Convener of the Toowoomba Prostate Cancer Support Group said â€œPresently one of our members is a client of this wonderful facility so it is only fitting that we make this further donation to assist with the purchase. We are sure that the new linen will be of immense benefit to the Clients of the Hospiceâ€.
