The Ladysmith Fraternal Order of the Eagles Aerie #2101 recently presented $1,000 to the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation’ CEO Janice Perrino for the purchase of vital medical equipment at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH). The group gives annual gifts to both Cowichan District Hospital and NRGH as Ladysmith residents utilize both facilities.

Since 1995 the Ladysmith Eagles have contributed $23,000 to healthcare needs at NRGH. Janice Perrino said ‘The Ladysmith Fraternal Order of the Eagles are a dedicated group who care very deeply about the health of our community. This long-term generosity is very much appreciated by our regional hospital.”

The Upper Island BC Hydro Power Pioneers brought their uplifting energy to the Paediatrics Unit at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital this week.

They also delivered a $1,000 donation (split between Paediatrics and Maternity) as well as hand crafted blankets, mittens, hats and slippers for sick children visiting hospital.

The volunteer group of BC Hydro retirees hosts a variety of annual fundraisers and contributes membership dues in order to support our most vulnerable patients.
