The emergency department at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital got another funding boost thanks to a $500 donation by the Mid Island Rose Society.
The society donated proceeds from its annual plant sale to the foundation to help purchase equipment for the emergency department.
“We go along in life and expect the hospital to just be there, but we also need to support it,” said Barbara Samarin, society president, in a press release.
Bev Hoar, society treasurer said at some point everyone needs the hospital.
The Mid Island Rose Society has about 30 members that host garden tours, and fund raise for community organizations.
