Community nurses in Woy Woy have received a $3500 donation in recognition of their work on the Peninsula.
“This donation is a wonderful acknowledgement of the work the community health nursing teams do and how valuable they are to the local community,” said acting director of community nursing Ms. Melissa Pickering, from the Central Coast Local Health District.
She said it was a welcome gift in a time that has been so tough for the community with coronavirus.
“We will continue to provide the best care possible to our patients.”
The donation was made by Deepwater Plaza shopping centre as part of a month-long “Thank You” project, where shoppers and retailers were invited to share a message of thanks to essential workers in the area.
The messages were written on the Community Appreciation Wall located outside the Service NSW shop.
Centre manager Ms Marcelle Proper said: “There are messages for volunteers, teachers, cleaners, security guards, retail workers, doctors, nurses, carers and emergency services personnel who have all made a difference to someone in our community, particularly in this year.”
The Appreciation Wall would stay in place at the Plaza for customers to read, she said.
