The North Grenville Duplicate Bridge Club recently donated $1,000 to the Kemptville District Hospital Foundation.

Kemptville District Hospital Foundation Board Chair Margret Norenberg was thrilled to accept the cheque from members of the NG Duplicate Bridge Club for a worthy cause. These funds will be used towards the acquisition of a new CT Scanner for KDH.

“Thanks to all of our members who support our club and helped make this possible”, said Club President, Elizabeth Robinson.

Following this donation from the NG Duplicate Bridge Club, Club member and long-time supporter of the KDH Foundation, Ed Chajkowski, matched this donation and hand delivered his cheque to the Foundation office a few days later.

“We are so grateful to the community for their continued support to the Foundation and Hospital”, says Joanne Mavis, Executive Director of the Foundation.

About the Kemptville District Hospital Foundation

The Kemptville District Hospital Foundation (KDHF) is the registered charitable organization that supports Kemptville District Hospital (KDH) by fundraising for essen- tial medical equipment that the hospital’s care teams need to care for patients. Government funding alone cannot supply all the equipment needed; KDH depends on the generosity of community donors to fund lifesaving equipment. Community support enabled the hos- pital to open its doors in 1960 and remains at the heart of KDH.

Donations to the KDHF support the skilled and compassionate care that is happening every day inside KDH.
