The donation was made on Tuesday, January 30 in memory of Jane & Cyril Rose, Emma and Alfred Rose, and Jane and Williams Graveney. Funds were raised to purchase the machines at a family reunion in December after the family learnt of the hospital's needs. They are imploring other families to support hospitals in meeting their demands and providing quality health-care to citizens.
