MORE and more sponsors are riding up to back the South Gippsland Hospital’s SGH Moovers team ahead of their 520-kilometre cycling relay in the 2023 Murray to Moyne fundraising event on Saturday and Sunday April 1 and 2.
As at Friday afternoon, February 24, individual donations totalling $2,250 have come in, along with a whopping $10,250 from local businesses and community groups.
SGH CEO Paul Greenhalgh said, “we started off this year’s Murray to Moyne campaign aiming for $5,000, and now we’ve exceeded our revised target of $10,000, so we’ve set a new goal of $20,000 for surgical equipment upgrades.
“During the past few weeks SGH Moovers have been so fortunate to receive such significant contributions from businesses, local people and community organisations, and we’ve nearly filled up our sponsors’ board in the Hospital grounds!” he said.
“We may have to look into getting another so we can acknowledge more of our supporters, which also includes donations of prizes to be won in a raffle to be drawn at Sandy Point Music’s next gig featuring Jungle Jim Smith on Saturday March 18, 2023.
“On the board we have our major sponsors; with Foster Service Centre, which started us off with $4000, alongside South Gippsland Radiology with $1500, Evans Petroleum and QUBE with $1000 from each, and Tanya Heaney-Voogt Leadership Coach and Foster Pharmacy with $500 each,” Mr Greenhalgh said.
“And on Friday, we were given $3000 more, by the Foster RSL Sub-branch,” he said.
“Thank you to all of our sponsors and donors, big and small, and we’d be more than pleased to welcome more to our growing list, which can be seen on the SGH Facebook page, with more updates and details in next week’s edition of The Mirror, too.”
