Heritage Fundraiser Funds Portable Ultrasound at Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital

West Nova Fuels A weekend of curling at the Lunenburg Curling Club has raised over $51,000 in support of the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore purchasing a portable ultrasound for the Emergency Department at Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital.

In 20 years, the West Nova Fuels Curl for a Cause has raised over $686,000 (gross total) for the community hospital. The annual bonspiel has now purchased & supported 89 pieces of equipment for various departments within Fishermen’s.

West Nova Fuels Curl for a Cause Organizing Committee Chair Anne Cosgrove says she is astounded by this weekend’s total.

“I am but I shouldn’t be. Residents of Lunenburg and its surrounding communities really pull together when it comes to supporting local. Anyone who has used Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital knows how much it gives to our community; this is our opportunity to give back to the hospital and its staff.”

Cosgrove, who is also a Board Member of the Health Services Foundation notes the success wouldn’t be as grand without the support of Lunenburg-based West Nova Fuels & West Nova Propane for the past 16 years as presenting sponsors.

The portable ultrasound machine is now a standard piece of equipment in emergency departments across our province. With a price tag of $54,900, the remaining funds will be raised through the Oak Island Shares the Dream auction on March 21st. The auction will feature unique items from the treasure hunt on the Curse of Oak Island.

The Health Services Foundation hopes to see the new portable ultrasound hit the floor of the Emergency Department in Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital within the next few months.
