Royal Canadian Legion Donation Supports Rehab Equipment
The Wingham & District Hospital Foundation is the recipient of a $4,395 grant provided by the Royal Canadian Legion Ontario Command Branches and Ladies’ Auxiliaries Charitable Foundation. This donation funds a new recumbent bike for the Physiotherapy Gym at the Wingham & District Hospital.
The addition of a recumbent bike will allow physiotherapy patients the opportunity to improve cardiovascular health, overall strength and endurance. The recumbent bike is senior friendly and is an important tool for the Rehab and Physiotherapy team to have access to. The use of a therapeutic recumbent bike can assist in recover from join replacement, stroke, injuries, and chronic pain. The Wingham & District Hospital Foundation is proud to partner with the Royal Canadian Legion Ontario Command once again to bring is important equipment to our community hospital.
The Royal Canadian Legion Charitable Foundation has a strong legacy of supporting healthcare. They have donated over $80,000 to the Wingham & District Hospital Foundation. This incredible generosity would not be possible without our local Legion branches in Wingham, Lucknow, Blyth, Howick and Brussels. The WDH Foundation extend sincere thanks to all the local Legions, their auxiliaries and to the Ontario Command. Thank you for recognizing the value of having quality healthcare close to home.
Marks Brothers Auto Body Honours Anniversary with Donation to Hospital
Marks Brothers Auto Body in Wingham is celebrating 60 years in businesses in May 2021. To mark the occasion they have donated $1,000 to the Wingham & District Hospital Foundation. This gift is being directed to the Ange Chester Memorial Fund for the benefit of the Oncology department.
Owners Lucas Marks and Jerrad Riley are third generation owners with the business being passed down from Marks’ grandfather and great uncle – the original Marks Brothers. The co-owners are making this donation as a way to give back to the community and show their thanks for all those who have supported them and their business over the past 60 years. The families were also close to the late Ange Chester so making the donation in her memory to benefit local cancer care makes the moment even more special.
Marks and Riley look forward to continuing to serve clients in Wingham and surrounding area for many more years and maybe one day to carrying on the tradition and passing the business on to the next generation of young Markses and Rileys.
