Toowoomba Hospice, March 13, 2015: South Toowoomba Apex Club today had the opportunity to donate money fundraised through not-for profit charity work to the Toowoomba Hospice. Club President Mr James Burleigh and Secretary Miss Georgia Stafford attended the Hospice where they presented Mr Mark Munro, Hospice Promotions and Fundraising Manager with a cheque for $1,100.
President of the Club Mr James Burleigh holds a special connection to the Toowoomba Hospice, as his Father Mr Rodney Howard Burleigh stayed at the Hospice for a few weeks before his passing in July 2014. The late Mr Burleigh was a life member of the Meandarra Apex Club and encouraged his son James to join and experience the many benefits of participating in a service club.
Mr James Burleigh was voted as President of the South Toowoomba Apex Club in July 2014, a few weeks before his Father sadly passed away. “Dad was very proud of my involvement in Apex, especially when I was voted as President,” said James. “I am very happy that South Toowoomba Apex Club is able to donate this money to the Hospice after everything they did for my Dad before he passed away. It is a pleasure to be able to honour his memory and help so many other families that benefit from the Toowoomba Hospice.”
Toowoomba Hospice is a community based private healthcare facility, which provides palliative care to the terminally ill. The funds donated will help Toowoomba Hospice to continue offering this service to the community.
Mr Mark Munro, Hospice Promotions and Fundraising Manager said, “We are very appreciative of South Toowoomba Apex’s support. It is clubs, charities and groups that allow the Toowoomba Hospice to keep operating for free.”
