May was Cobequid Month!

May was Cobequid Month!

May is a special month for the Cobequid Foundation. This year, we launched May Month, during which we partner with groups and organisations in our community in order to continuously improve the service here at the Cobequid Health Centre. During the month of May, the Foundation encouraged local groups and businesses to organise different fundraisers to support enhancements to the Emergency Department in the Health Centre. Many different clubs, groups, schools and individuals stepped forward.
Here at the Cobequid, we shared cake with patients and staff at the Centre to celebrate all that our Health Centre does for the community. We had a barbeque one sunny afternoon in the front parking lot and raised almost $900 in three hours with the help of Scotiabank, who matched the donations we received.
Thank you to the many community groups, businesses and individuals who made our Cobequid Month a success.
