2018 – HVS Presentation

Hayling Island Businessmen’s Club have presented a cheque to The Hayling Volunteer Service who are based at the Health Centre to fund a new medical couch. The chair would be such an enormous help in the treatment of leg ulcers, wounds which is backbreaking work all day every day, but with the aid of proper equipment it will make life so much easier for nursing staff. The volunteer service have raised some of the funding from raffles, book sales and coffee mornings with HIBC making up the shortfall

The Volunteer Service and Practice staff were delighted with our donation and invited Malcolm Newnes our Club secretary and Club member Andy Lenaghan to their regular Tuesday open meeting to present the cheque
