Pink Ladies donate to The Pines

| 09/12/2008

(CNS): The Pink Ladies Volunteer Corps (PLVC) recently made a donation of CI$6,300 to the Pines Retirement Home for the purchase of a hoist with slings and alternating pressure pad systems for beds with pumps for the Pines residents. “The equipment is desperately needed and will be of great benefit to our residents and our staff,” said Sue Nicholson, Manager of The Pines.

In thanking the PLVC for their donation of these vital pieces of equipment, Nicholson expressed appreciation for the continued support and generosity of the Pink Ladies to The Pines.

The two main fundraising functions of the PLVC are the Pink Hibiscus Coffee Shop at the George Town Hospital and the Annual Christmas Bazaar and Tea which bring in the majority of funds which are then donated back into the Community through support of various projects and groups.

Projects which PLVC have supported recently include the Pines Retirement Home, NCVO Foster Home, the Lighthouse School, NCVO Telethon, Special Olympics, Cayman Crisis Centre, School lunch programme at George Hicks Campus, George Town and Red Bay Primary Schools

New members are always welcome and encouraged to become part of the organisation to ensure that these projects continue to flourish and get much needed funds and support.

Further information about joining the PLVC is available from either Dorothy Miller, Director at PO Box 11402 KY1-1008 or by email or telephone 949 2269 or Jane Moon, Secretary by email or telephone 945 4383.
