Letter to the Editor-Friday, April 11:Palliative care benefit

A STREET party was recently held on the front lawn of Phil and Fay Johnston's home to raise funds to purchase a water chair for the Palliative Care Unit at the Grafton Base Hospital. This event was a highly successful social event with over 100 people attending.

We had lots of raffle prizes donated by local businesses and Beaches Fashions conducted a mini fashion parade.

The group is pleased to advise that we achieved our target with some monies left over, which we will put towards other equipment that may be required.

The Palliative Care Group wish to sincerely thank all sponsors, business houses and members of the Grafton community for their generosity in supporting this event.

Fay would like to personally thank the residents of Tolga Place, family and friends, for their assistance on the day, plus the community members who sold raffle tickets and donated monies and prizes for this worthwhile cause.
