Organizers, board members donate $216,000 for upgrades at Wingham hospital.
Those directly involved with the cause are the latest donors to the Wingham and District Hospital Foundation.
Volunteers and members of the foundation's board have announced a collective $216 thousand donation to the "Our Hospital, Our Future" campaign.
Officials say the latest and largest donation brings fundraising to $1.7 million, or 42 per cent of the $4 million target.
A six-figure donation was also announced by Bruce County, who recently approved giving 100 thousand over four years.
The Our Hospital, Our Future campaign is raising funds for renovations at the Wingham facility, including upgrades to the only chemotherapy department in Huron and Bruce counties.
