Ladies raise trolley load of cash

THEY are known far and wide for their kind words, smiling faces and unstoppable support of local hospitals.

The Pink Ladies at the Coffs Harbour Health Campus are also astute businesswomen.

They’ve handed over a new electric transfer trolley to provide a smoother transition for patients to and from the Emergency Department and the helipad.

The volunteer group’s co-ordinator Helen Meares said the $13,000 price tag had been raised from gift and coffee shop sales.

“We have been able to give the hospital $149,000 this year and with the start of the new financial year it’s time to decide on the focus for next year,” she said.

Wardsman Phillip Baker says he is looking forward to using the new trolley.

“This is specifically designed, it’s just going to be beautiful,” he said.
