The beneficiary of this year’s fundraising efforts is the Maleny Soldiers Memorial Hospital. Funds will be used to gift a piece of diagnostic equipment called at Spirometer. The machine is specifically designed to be used to test lung function capability for patients who have respiratory problems including asthma, pneumonia and stroke. Testing these patients allows hospital staff to monitor their improvement during their hospitalisation and tailor their rehabilitation/treatment plans to the greatest effect.
Tickets go on sale this weekend!
