They have each volunteered 30 years apiece and were each presented with their badges at the recent Christmas thank you afternoon tea provided by the Finley Hospital.

Certificates for 25 years of service were presented to Stella Joseph, Maureen Whitty and Shirley Randall.

The Finley Hospital Auxiliary Opportunity Shop is the auxiliary’s source of income and this year, and continuing into 2013, members are working around the extension and renovations to the shop.

When this is finished they will be able to donate more towards items that enhance patient comfort at the Finley Hospital.

‘‘We are most grateful to Finley and district residents who support us and donate articles for sale,’’ Auxiliary president Marge Kable said.

New members are always welcome and may ring Marge on 58833075.

Meetings are held on the fourth Friday of the month at 2pm.
