Thank you: Strathmerton Lions Club president Ian Taylor, Cobram District Hospital chief executive Craig De Lacy and Strathmerton Lions assistant treasurer Basil Harris.

Club assistant treasurer Basil Harris said the proceeds arrived from a fishing weekend held in March, with attendees from across the state.
The 25-member group raises about $20
Hospital chief executive Craig De Lacy said the donation was another step towards a $3
But he said the Lions money could go towards a specific piece of equipment, such as a ‘‘no-lift’’ patient assistance system.
‘‘It’s fantastic. The people of Cobram and district are just so generous, it’s amazing,’’ Mr De Lacy said.
‘‘It’s getting harder and harder in health services with funding, and without donations, some things not achievable.’’
