Hospital thanks faithful volunteers

On Friday, 90-year-old Peg Wells (pictured here with Dan Madden) received flowers and a certificate of appreciation for her 39 years of service to Lismore Base Hospital. Peg and fellow 90-year-old Nell Walker are the Hospital Auxiliarys oldest volunteers.

Lismore Base Hospitals unsung heroes were thanked at a special morning tea last Friday as part of NSW Health Volunteers Appreciation Day.

The hospitals executive officer Dan Madden told the assembled volunteers from the Red Cross, Lismore Base Hospital Auxiliary, Our Kids and the Cancer Care Palliative Patient Care that their work was hugely appreciated.

He said as pressure increased on health funding the work of volunteers was becoming even more crucial.

Its really you who are the front line troops, he said.
