Thanks to a grant from Australian Lions Foundation, the Lions Club of Murray Bridge City has presented a $2000 cheque to Murray Bridge Soldiers Memorial Hospital staff.
The donation will go towards a new electric bed for patients.
The N10 electric bed is highly flexible and transportable and has a weight capacity of 260 kilograms.
Lions Club membership chairperson Carolyn Kilpatrick spoke of the benefits of the bed.
“The beds are accessible for staff and patients: if someone wants to get in and out of the bed, they can do so very quickly,” she said.
“You can make the bed longer, and you can adjust the height.”
Ms Kilpatrick said that the new bed would help people in the community.
“This is something that the Lions Club does: we support those who are in need.”
