San Volunteers donate more than their time
After its members have volunteered an incredible 51,500 hours of labour at the San over the last year, the San Volunteers team has again demonstrated its invaluable generosity with the donation of the profits from volunteer managed San Snax café.
Volunteers Manager Patrina McLean presented the proceeds to San CEO Brett Goods during a thank you morning tea for San Volunteers held in the San Café.
"Today we donated the profits from San Snacks from the 2018/2019 financial year of $50,500 back to the San" said Patrina.
"The funds will be used towards a defibrillator and much needed patient electric recliner chairs."
During the morning tea, Brett thanked the volunteers acknowledging the diverse range of work they undertake which includes helping on the wards, at concierge, chatting to patients, running the San Snax Café and a multitude of other tasks.
Director of Mission Integration Dr Branimir Schubert also thanked the volunteers noting the time they give is an invaluable contribution to the Hospital's Mission of caring for our patients, staff and community.
In thanks last week the Hospital hosted a daily daily morning tea thankyou celebration for the volunteer team members.
