Tasmania’s peak electrical industry body, the National Electrical and Communications Association (NECA), has donated $1,275 to the Paediatric Oncology Clinic at the Royal Hobart Hospital (RHH).
The money was raised at the Association’s annual industry luncheon through the raffle of an iPad donated by Scholz Industries.
RHH’s Community Relations Unit Director Pene Snashall said, “I would like to thank NECA and Scholz Industries for this generous donation which will be put towards the purchase of equipment to support children diagnosed with cancer and undergoing lengthy and sometimes difficult treatments in our oncology clinic.
“Many Tasmanian children will, over time, benefit from this equipment during their journey through cancer treatment.”
Around 200 representatives from Tasmania’s electrical industry, including contractors and wholesalers, attended NECA’s annual industry luncheon in Hobart.
NECA Tasmania’s Chapter Secretary James Tinslay said, “It is great that thanks to the generosity of NECA members we have been able to make this donation to the Royal Hobart Hospital.
“A special thank you needs to go to Scholz Industries for their generous donation of the iPad which made the fundraising operation possible.”
