Ayr Health Service recipient of heartfelt gift
Published: 11 December 2020
Ayr Health Service patients are set to benefit from a generous donation by New Creation Church, Ayr.
The donation, valued at $5,000, supported the health service to upgrade important equipment like medication and surgical instrument trolleys and purchase a newborn baby cot.
Ayr Health Service director of nursing Tracey Gabiola said the donation was greatly appreciated.
“We now have twelve new trolleys and the new baby cot means we have an extra for those times we have more than one newborn baby in the hospital,” she said.
“New Creation Church Ayr are a wonderful group of people with a real focus on how their tithe can assist members of their local community which is lovely to see.”
New Creation Church Ayr representative Jonathan Federici said the donation was made in line with the values and beliefs of the church.
“The donation to the Ayr Health Service was made out of a heart of love and compassion for the sick,” Mr Federici said.
“My wife is a nurse at the Ayr Health Service and asked the nurses and doctors for a wish list of sorts so we could ensure the donation would get the team items they most needed.
“We came to understand that the equipment and surgical instrument trolleys and newborn cot would assist the health workers in their delivery of health care to the community.
“We were delighted to be able to make this donation and know that it would translate to helping doctors and nurses care for the sick people of the Burdekin.”
Mr Federici said the funds to make the donation were raised by the church group through their tithe.
“We believe our tithe is to be used to share the gospel of grace,” he said.
“It is also to share God’s love in a practical way in our community.”
