Rita's a life member

AT THE recent United Hospital Auxiliary held in Sydney, Lismore Base Hospital Auxiliary president Rita Richards was one of only ten awarded life membership of the Auxiliary. Rita transferred to Lismore from Kyogle in 2003. She had joined the auxiliary in Kyogle in 1990 and held positions of treasurer, secretary and president. She also served on the Kyogle board including the position of chairman. Since transferring to Lismore, she has held the positions of secretary and currently president. She also works on stalls, sells raffle tickets and does the trolley service.

"Rita's a very busy lady," says co-auxiliary worker, Susan Havilah. "She also serves in the Anglican Ministry Centre, the Anglican Op Shop and is a pastoral visitor for the Anglican Church at the Base Hospital."

"Since she became president of the Lismore branch, we have increased in numbers in no small measure, due to Rita as she is an inspiration, great fun to work with and a lovely lady who well deserves this honour."

The Auxiliary has opened a gift shop in the hospital foyer with handmade goods for sale Mon-Wed, 9.30am to 2pm.
