THE Mathoura Community Health Centre has a new light-weight transit wheelchair.
Clients who need one to access the centre will find it much easier thanks to a $1000 donation from the Mathoura Branch of the United Hospital Auxiliaries (UHA) of NSW.
Mathoura community nurse Sue Seymour said the centre was grateful for the donation which meant the team could buy the chair.
‘‘This was a fantastic effort from a small committee and we thank the community for its support,’’ she said.
The UHA held a series of fundraising events including a lunch in September where more than $1000 was raised.
The chair is also available for short-term loan for out-of-town appointments in hospitals where wheelchairs are not always available and the car park is a long way away.
