Lodge donates palliative care bed
THE FRASER Coast's Freemasons have donated a portable hospital bed to Fraser Coast Palliative Care.
Ed Francis, secretary of the Fraser Coast United Lodge, said there was a high demand for palliative care beds for use in private homes.
"The need was immediate for this bed," he said.
"We handed it over on Tuesday and it was gone (Wednesday)."
Mr Francis said the funds for the bed came from the Lodge's coffers, ahead of a fundraiser dance at Tinana Hall.
The event will be held on Saturday, July 27 from 7.30pm and will feature the popular dance program by MC Lloyd Lack.
There will be a raffle, Monte carol, chocolate dance and a homemade supper.
Entry is $9.
