The sweet sounds of Wellington on the Lake’s Golden Voices choir raised $600 for the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation. The choir consists of 45 members, led by director Laura Demers. Since its inception in 2000, the choir has given 13 performances and raised funds for numerous worthy causes in the County including the hospital foundation. This donation will be directed toward the purchase of state-of-the-art medical equipment requested by the medical staff at Picton.

The PECMH Foundation Board is committed to making sure Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital is the most efficient and effective rural community acute care hospital in Ontario.

“This means ensuring financial resources are available to respond to the needs of our health care professionals,” says Leo Finnegan, president of the foundation. “Continued support from groups and individuals is vital as the government does not provide funds to purchase priority medical equipment.

“Our job is to support the medical staff at PECMH by raising donations to pay for the equipment and facilities needed to provide a range of health care services to County residents.”

To date, the Wellington on the Lake Residents Association has given more than $8,000 to the PECMH Foundation.
