Woodturners make light work of eqipment 7th July 2016

Patients and staff at the children's ward at Mount Druitt Hospital benefited from a new vital signs monitor and examination table, valued at more than $10,000, thanks to a generous donation from local craftsmen and women.

Mount Druitt Hospital’s children's ward nursing unit manager Mildred Villason was delighted with the equipment, which was purchased from funds raised by the Western Sydney Woodturners Incorporation. “We are grateful for the Woodturners’ continuous generosity and support," she said. Members of the Western Sydney Woodturners Incorporation actively raised funds to purchase the new equipment by selling items such as small wooden bowls, toilet roll and hand towel holders at schools, fetes and historical house gatherings.

Western Sydney Woodturners Incorporation president Bob Young said the group had been associated with Mount Druitt Hospital for more than seven years. “As a hobby, the men and women enjoy making and creating everyday items, which we then sell at functions and wood turning demonstrations,” he said. “All the proceeds are then given to the children's ward at Mount Druitt Hospital.”

The new vital signs monitor brings an additional monitor to the ward while the examination table will alleviate strain on staffs’ backs as it can be adjusted to accommodate different heights when performing routine examinations.

A letter of Thanks...

Hi there,

I just wanted to say a huge thankyou to everyone at Western Sydney Woodturners.

My daughter Maddison was in hospital at Easter and some of your lovely members came around with a gorgeous Bowl and some Easter Eggs for all the children.

Thank you so much for this. It definitely put a smile on the faces of all the children and their families.

Not very often are kind gestures committed these days.

I've attached a picture of Maddison from when she was in hospital. (Definitely feeling a lot better - eating one of her Easter Eggs).

Could you please pass on my thanks to all your members?

Kind regards,

Angela Bertenshaw.
