Emergency Department staff at Wyong Hospital won’t have to worry about their two fruit and five veg for a little while thanks to a generous donation from the Gorokan-Kanwal Lions Club.
Wanting to do something to show their appreciation for the frontline workers putting their health on the line for the northern Central Coast, Lions’ members decided to put together a large box of fruit to donate to the hospital.
Club member, Norma Chaffer, said it was the members’ hope that the fruit box would help keep busy ED staff fed and energised.
“We know that the ED doctors and nurses are very busy and often don’t have time for proper meals, so we wanted to make sure that they have healthy fruit available to eat,” Chaffer said.
The fruit box was well received by ED staff, who expressed their gratitude to the Lions for the kind gesture.
