Spirits were bright at the Wellings of Picton as a group of residents presented the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation with a holiday gift of $3,300.  The funds were raised at the Wellings’ second annual Making Spirits Bright Christmas Bazaar in November.

The gift is earmarked for the Back the Build Campaign for a new hospital for Prince Edward County.

There were 20 vendors who sold their wares to close to 300 people who attended.

“The bake sale was a huge success,” said Rachel Henry, general manager. “On behalf of the staff at the Wellings we sincerely thank the community for attending and heartfelt thanks to the residents who helped organize this festive event.

“The residents group that came together from the Wellings to make this gift in support of our Back the Build campaign speaks to the importance of community involvement and the impact that it has on the quality of life for those residing and visiting our County,” said Shannon Coull, executive director of the PECMH Foundation. “We are so grateful for the support shown to us by the residents living at the Wellings of Picton and their keen interest in the future of our hospital.”

Those interested in learning more about the Back the Build Campaign, should call Shannon at 613-476-1008 ext. 4503 or Marthe at 613-476-1008 ext. 4502. Information can also be found at www.backthebuild.ca

Since its beginning in 1985, the PECM Foundation has raised more than $6 million for medical equipment and building renovations.

Annually, the Foundation funds the purchase of an average of $400,000 in medical equipment. Now the Foundation is also responsible for raising the community’s share of $12.7 million for the new hospital, plus an estimated $3 million for equipment to be moved into the new hospital. All together, the Foundation expects it will need to raise $16.5 million over the next five years.
