On Thursday, June 19th, representatives from Antigonish Farmers’ Mutual Insurance were in Cheticamp to present their first installment of a $20,000.00 pledge to some very appreciative board members of the Sacred Heart Hospital Foundation.
The Foundation is in the process of fund-raising to cover their share of the cost to replace the radiology (xray) machine at Sacred Heart Hospital. The foundation’s share to replace the radiology equipment will be $110,000 so this donation came at a very opportune time.
That same day, Sid Taylor, Farmers’ Mutual board president, and Bill Chisholm, manager of Farmers’ Mutual, were also in Inverness to make another presentation, a first installment ($4,000) of a five year $20,000 pledge to Inverness Consolidated Memorial Hospital Charitable Foundation.
“Antigonish Farmers’ Mutual has a history of donating to medical institutions in the area that we service,” Taylor told The Oran.
We’re thrilled with this new pledge which will go towards our annual contribution to purchase important medical equipment for Inverness Consolidated Memorial Hospital, and we’re also thrilled that both local hospitals are benefiting.
