Rotary gives hospital a lift

White Rock club donates chairs to day-surgery unit

Peace Arch Hospital’s day-surgery unit has four new lift chairs, thanks to a donation from the Rotary Club of White Rock.

The chairs “are intended to provide a comfortable setting for patients requiring blood transfusions, chemo and other day-care procedures,” according to a release.

The rotary club’s donation was made in honour of longtime member – and a past president – of the club, Derek Lucas.

While receiving treatments in the PAH unit earlier this year, Lucas mentioned to club members that new chairs would make the experience better for patients. Lucas passed away Feb. 15, and the club “made it a priority to source and purchase new chairs… in both his memory and in memory of all other Rotarians who have benefitted from using the facilities at Peace Arch Hospital.”

Among the Rotary Club of White Rock’s next fundraising efforts is the annual strawberry sale; for more information, visit www.whiterockrotary.org
