YMCA Aquatic Centre Staff give a big Thank You to Hospital Staff
YMCA staff at the BH Regional Aquatic Centre have put together 104 gift bags with goodies for Broken Hill Health Service staff to thank them for their work in helping protect the community against COVID-19.
The gift bags were delivered today and will be distributed to staff. They contain items including water bottles, tea/coffee mug, chips, lollies, drinks and a roll of toilet paper (collected when local supermarket shelves were running short!).
YMCA Aquatic Centre Manager, Jacinta Simmons, said staff wanted to say thank you to hospital staff.
'We wanted to do something for health care workers for what they are doing and have done to keep the community safe,' she said.
The items were donated by the YMCA with staff providing the manpower to sort and pack the bags.
Melissa Welsh, General Manager Broken Hill Health Service, said staff will be very grateful for the show of support.
'We (the health service) have had long time partnerships with the YMCA on various projects over the years and it's great to see it demonstrated like this,' she said.
'We are very grateful to the YMCA and their staff for this kind donation and I'm sure the staff will appreciate it very much!'
