Power 94.9 help local hospital raise funds
Earlier this week on the Power 94.9 breakfast show, Chris & Carly interviewed Kathy Schofield, a registered nurse at the Shoalhaven District Memorial Hospital.
Kathy and her workmates wanted to get the word out to the community that they are planning on raising $10,000 to start creating a garden at the hospital for Intensive Care patients.
The ultimate plan was to raise more than that but this would be a great start.
On-air she promoted their Melbourne Cup Fundraiser and revealed they had already raised between $5,000 and $6,000. That's when the Power FM listeners kicked in to help out.
A prominent local businessman started it off by donating $5,000, then after the show another anonymous local donated $10,000.
Power FM say they were very proud they could help the hospital double their initial target before the event had even been held.
A great feel good local story.
