The Lions Club of Yamba with the assistance from Lions NSW/ACT Save Sight and Public Health Care Foundations has donated $10,467.00 for a Resus bed for the Maclean Hospital emergency department.
This bed will be invaluable to the accessibility to patients following critical events with its removable sections, X-Ray position holders and electric backrest. It will also enable comfort and care for bariatric patients.
Yamba Lions Club has raised funds through their Sunday Market catering van and ‘Pancakes in the Park’ and remains committed to serving others in their community.
… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.
If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it.
For as little as $5, you can support the Independent – Thank you.
