Pavers sale to raise funds for PDH

Thursday, 22 January 2015
The Portland community can support their local hospital and continue a proud tradition of giving through a new Pavers for Portland District Health fund-raising initiative.

The Pavers for Portland District Health campaign being launched this week will give local people, families and businesses the chance to have their name engraved on a paver to become part of a permanent public display near the hospital.

CEO Chris Giles said the health service was inviting all past and present clients, patients and supporters of PDH along with local businesses, companies and families to put their name down for history.

These engraved pavers will be laid at a prominent position near the new helipad site fronting Bentinck Street, Ms Giles said.

There are several existing plaque and paver displays in the Ploughed Field area and PDH is keen to continue the flavour of that precinct, she said.

Local people now have the opportunity to continue that history.

Ms Giles said she hoped for strong community support for the fund-raising initiative.

Local people realise Portland District Health respects and nurtures human life by dedicated attention to excellence in healthcare for the whole community, and that we endeavour to deliver these services with compassion, respect and equity,” she said.

Individual supporters, families or companies can have their name or logo engraved on the clay pavers and become part of local history for future generations to see as a supporter of Portland District Health.

The pavers will be permanently located near the new helipad site, facing Bentinck Street on a sloping wall.

All donations for pavers are tax deductible. The closing date for the first batch of pavers will be Monday March 2.

Ms Giles said it was planned to make the pavers an ongoing community fund-raising initiative.
