Ron & Gerry Leslie – Leslie Motors – Donate $3,500 to Wingham Hospital

Ron and Gerry Leslie donated of $3,509 from their family Foundation to benefit the Wingham & District Hospital. The Leslies are the owners of Leslie Motors Ford, which is now operated by their children and grandchildren.

Supporting local hospitals, service groups, charities and volunteering has been a Leslie family custom since Ron and Gerry’s early days as Ford dealers and this new donation continues that legacy.   

The donation to the Wingham & District Hospital will go towards important medical equipment and facility upgrades. Some of the top priorities currently include, a refresh of the ultrasound department, scopes for the OR, evacuation equipment, IV pumps and a cast cart.

Everyone at the Wingham & District Hospital Foundation is grateful to count the Leslie family, as well as Leslie Motors, as part of their supportive hospital community.

Donors Make a Difference
It is people like you who make our work possible.

Thank you to every one who has made a commitment to supporting local healthcare.
Our doctors, our nurses, the digital imaging department, and the rest of the staff at the hospital provide that compassionate care that everyone looks for when they walk into their local hospital. And, I think we’ve got one of the best local hospitals in Southwestern Ontario.

I donate in memory and in honour of my Mom and Dad. I am sure they would be thrilled to realize that our family has continued giving, but more importantly, hopefully encourage more people to donate to the Wingham & District Hospital Foundation. All three of us, at one time or another, received outstanding care at the hospital when we were patients. We have a strong connection with the hospital! I know the community feels very fortunate to have a local hospital – which is an excellent one – as it plays such an important part in everyone’s lives.
