The Nanaimo Hospital Auxiliary has handed over a cheque for a quarter million dollars to the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.
The money will be used to purchase emergency room and intensive care equipment.
The Auxiliary is also donating an additional $85,000 in support of other hospital departments.

Over the past 10 years, Nanaimo Hospital Auxiliary volunteers have raised over $3 million in support of Nanaimo General, and have provided over 40,000 hours of community service annually.
