Funding boost for local hospital auxiliaries

Kyogle Council Deputy Mayor Cr John Burley has presented a cheque for $250 to the Kyogle Hospital Auxiliary President Elaine McIntosh.

The money was raised by auctioning a fully signed North Queensland Cowboys rugby league jersey which Kyogle Mayor Danielle Mulholland and Cr Maggie May were given at the Australian Local Government Association Conference in Canberra last year.

A number of their Kyogle colleagues contributed towards the cost of framing the jersey which was then put under the hammer, raising a total of $501.

Councillors decided to split the proceeds between the Kyogle and Bonalbo Hospital Auxiliaries with the money to be spent on public aged care.
