|Description & Services|
|Information||The purpose of Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital Auxiliary is:
• to raise funds to purchase equipment to benefit both patient and staff care and comfort
• to contribute to the health care of the community in general
• to give an annual bursary to a local student who is pursuing studies in a health related field
• to foster good public relations with the community, hospital administration and staff
Our main fundraisers are the Hospital Gift Shop, the 200 Club Lottery and a large bake sale during the annual Festival of Crafts in July, with contributions from the people of the town and surrounding communities.
A Golf Tournament is held each year at the Bluenose Golf Club, organized by a dedicated group of golfers with support from Auxiliary members; all money raised is given to the Auxiliary.
In addition to supporting Fishermen's and our other South Shore Regional Hospitals with equipment and furnishings, our Auxiliary has contributed to the health care of the community.
We provide bursaries for selected local students pursuing studies in health related fields who commit to returning to the area to work.
The Auxiliary also runs a Foot Clinic, a Well Women's Clinic, and provides support to Meals on Wheels with volunteers and funds.
