The Halfmoon Bay branch of the Sunshine Coast Healthcare Auxiliary has provided $10,000 from its Memorial Fund to purchase new physiotherapy equipment for the Pender Harbour Health Centre.
Memorial funds are usually given to individual branches of the Auxiliary in memory of loved ones for the branch to support a healthcare initiative in their community. The new equipment will enable residents of the upper peninsula to receive physiotherapy and acupuncture services without the drive to Sechelt or beyond. Since 1976, the Pender Harbour Health Centre has been a community funded, community run and community centred facility.
