Members of Friends of Altnagelvin met with staff from local business ‘Don’t Bin Cash In’ in the Occupational Therapy Unit, of the hospital’s South Wing recently, to express their thanks for more than £14,500 of donations since the company formed in 2009.
Don’t Bin Cash In is a local company which buys good quality unwanted clothes, shoes, handbags, bedding and belts, which are resold in Eastern Europe.
Head of the Occupation Therapy Unit Heather Coates met with both committee members from the hospital charity and with Mary Doherty and Amanda Bradshaw of Don’t Bin Cash In to describe what the company’s many donations had meant for them; including allowing them to purchase specialist chairs and kitchen equipment to help people in their rehabilitation.
Karen Love from Friends of Altnagelvin said: “Our small committee are always delighted to see the good outcomes for patients that such generous donations can achieve.”
Mary Doherty added: “We are delighted to have helped the Friends of Altnagelvin in contributing to the purchase of this equipment.”
