LIKE a game of poker, the blokes at the Grafton Men's Shed raised the initial bid four times before signing the win over to a worthy cause.
No poker faces were needed and not a Queen of Hearts in sight, just the warmness of their own, as the group presented the Clarence Valley palliative care unit with a wheelchair and $1000 cheque.
Treasurer of the Men's Shed Warren Moss said they had been given the wheelchair to do up and give to someone they felt needed it most, and the monetary donation was their cherry on top.
"We chose palliative care because we thought they could use a wheelchair to help with the patients at home," he said.
"We decided to donate the $100 dollars we got from selling a rotunda we made for the owner of the brewery.
"Then we thought we'd add in the $300 we sold an office desk for, which we made, so we had $400 to donate."
But it didn't stop there.
"I said to the boys, well we might as well make it $500, and everyone agreed," Mr Moss said.
"Then we thought some of us will probably end up in palliative care, so why not make it $1000."
Clarence Valley palliative care unit clinical nurse consultant Petra Quante said the donation was "absolutely amazing".
"The wheelchair we will use for home visits because often people are restricted to their bed, so this means we can get them out in the garden," Ms Quante said.
"The cheque - wow - it's wonderful.
"We will use this for equipment and also the grief and loss books that we buy for our bereavement service."
