Visitors to Clevedon Minor Injury Unit will benefit from a new £800 x-ray viewer – bought with money raised at Clevedon Yeo Rotary garden competition this summer.
The £600 raised from the competition was topped up from existing Rotary funds to £800, enabling the purchase of a high resolution, high definition x-ray viewer, which replaced a broken one and helps with improved analysis of x-rays.
President of Clevedon Yeo Rotary Club, Helen Riley said: “We are so happy to be able to purchase a vital bit of equipment for the hospital. It will provide tremendous benefit to local residents who need to use the hospital.
“It was as a result of the gardens competition that brightened up the town and gave a boost locally in this difficult summer.”
People living in the town helped raise money towards this cause by paying a small fee to enter the competition, which proved very popular.
