TWO Staff Nurses working in Theatres at Craigavon Area Hospital were able to donate a substantial amount of food to local charities after organising an appeal for donations of non-perishable food items and meat vouchers for people in need in the local community.

Staff Nurses Ruth Wright and Andrea Cushnahan have been busy collecting donations, over many weeks, from medical and nursing staff of the Theatre and Recovery Department at Craigavon Area Hospital.

Both nurses worked very hard on this project and were overwhelmed by the generosity of their colleagues and were keen to thank everyone for all their efforts.

Ruth commented: “I would like to say a very well done to everyone who got involved in this. Salvation Army and St Vincent de Paul Society were delighted with the considerable amount of food hampers and meat vouchers received and acknowledged that these hampers would will go a long way to help those most in need in our community.”
