It won’t be long now before the ‘C.A.T.’ finds its home at the Haldimand War Memorial Hospital. Local support has played a key role in securing the future of Haldimand County’s first CT scanner, which is set to be fully operational in May 2013.
The Dunnville Boat Club shows the latest act of support with a $500.00 donation towards the Dunnville Hospital & Healthcare Foundation’s ‘Back the C.A.T.’ campaign.
Rob Charnley, Dunnville Boat Club Rear Commodore, thought the CT scanner was a deserving cause for a donation from the club. “The Dunnville Boat Club is proud to support the Back the C.A.T. campaign and the progress of healthcare services in our community.”
A longstanding partnership between DHHF and the Boat Club exists, with donations of over $30,000 being presented to the Foundation over the last two decades.
“This donation demonstrates that even a small organization like the Dunnville Boat Club can make a big difference,” said Gord Little, Treasurer of the DHHF Board of Directors. “With the support of the Boat Club and other organizations and individuals in our community, we are pleased to report that approximately $900,000.00 of the $1.5 million goal has been raised to-date.”
