A Chatham-Kent’s nurses’ group accomplished its goal.

The Chatham-Kent Nurses in Support of the Chatham-Kent Hospice, organized by retired nurse Bonnie Sunnen, had a goal of raising $50,000 by Dec. 1. The plan was to encourage local nurses, working and retired, to support the hospice.

When this month arrived, they’d raised $51,371.

A nurses’ station in the hospice will be named in their honour.

To help encourage donations, several prize packs were offered up, ranging from a week’s stay in a vacation home in Florida, to hockey tickets to a mani/pedi gift certificate.

Meanwhile, organizations continue to pour forth to support the hospice’s capital campaign.

Mahle Filter Systems in Tilbury donated $25,000.

Chatham Valley Scottish Rite, a branch of the Masonic Lodge, donated $5,000.
