Your Community Health Organisation In McLaren Vale
We Are Committed To Improving Your Health
A dedicated group of local people, supporting the health organisation.
McLaren Vale & Districts War Memorial Hospital is well supported by a dedicated group of volunteers. These are all drawn from the community and fulfil a variety of roles. The group has its own elected committee which organises the various roles and functions undertaken.
These roles vary from setting out vases of flowers in patients rooms, staffing the hospital shop and patients tea trolley to accepting, pricing and selling all manner of goods in the hospital Op Shop, organising and staffing social functions for members of the community and running large “garage sales” at the hospital during the year as well as a “craft fair” at a community location.
Many of the craft items sold at the fair are actually hand made by volunteers who meet each week as a group to create, design and make the various items. Other Volunteers will undertake various craft roles at home whereby they may knit, crochet or embroider items for sale in the hospital shop.
To become a volunteer, contact the health organisation reception on phone number +61 8323 6600
