Submitted by Natanis Hageman, president-Haida Gwaii Storm Riders Society–Thanks to a successful Poker Run and a substantial donation from Masset businessmen Rollie Wheeler and John Chutter, the Haida Gwaii Storm Riders were able to donate $1,136 for long-term care patient comforts. The money was divided evenly between the two hospitals and entrusted to the Patient Care Coordinator in each hospital, along with a letter specifying that the funds are to be used for patient comforts not covered under operating expenses.
And Ron Rowan of Lawn Hill presented the donation for the QC Hospital to Marsha Forrest on Thursday, Sept. 8. And directors John and Natanis Hageman presented the donation to Dawn Edwards and the ‘on duty’ nursing staff, along with a Masset long term care resident, on Friday, Sept. 9.
