Kiosk volunteers raise $1m

HARD working volunteers from the kiosk at Swan District Hospital have raised $1 million to buy key hospital equipment.
Over the past nine years, funds raised by the volunteers from the Friends of the Swan Valley Kiosk have enabled the hospital to buy vital sign monitors, bladder scanners, defibrillators, training mannequins and ultrasound machines.
The kiosk runs seven days a week, and is staffed by more than 60 volunteers.
All proceeds from the kiosk are donated back to the hospital, with the most recent batch of funding used to purchase two iPads for the Speech Pathology Department, which will give patients access to a range of speech 
and language therapy programs.
Swan Kalamunda Health Service nursing director Annemarie Alexander said the efforts of all the volunteers to improve the comfort of patients were greatly appreciated by the hospital staff, patients, families and the wider community.
