Hospital fete celebrates the community and healthcare


All the fun of the fair came to Wonthaggi Hospital on Saturday 14 October, when the Bass Coast Ladies Auxiliary held its annual fete. 

The event transformed Stirton Room into a hub of festivity, with people of all ages lured by the promise of being able to buy all their fete goodies while supporting Bass Coast Health, their sub-regional health service. 

The fete included Devonshire teas, jams, baked goods, a sausage sizzle, white elephant stall, raffles, knitted goods, a coffee van, hot potatoes and a plant stall. 

BCH CEO Jan Child was grateful for the hard-working volunteers of the BCH Ladies Auxiliary, whose extensive preparations and efforts on the day resulted in a successful event. 

“This fete raised much-needed funds for the community’s sub-regional health service and helped us to continue to provide a greater range of healthcare to our community close to their homes,” she said.
