The Lismore Base Hospital Auxiliary this week opened a revamped shop-front in a prominent position in the foyer of Lismore Base Hospital (LBH).
Auxiliary members have welcomed the move, saying the new location has brought increased public awareness and positive feedback from the general public and hospital staff.
“This spot gives us a higher public profile, because not everyone was aware of it in the old location,” President of the LBH Auxiliary, Diane Miller, says.
The store had previously been located inside the foyer of the Level 4 café.
“When the public supports the gift shop, that supports our fundraising efforts and we have more opportunities to supply equipment for the benefit of hospital patients,” Mrs Miller says.
The gift shop is open Monday to Friday, 8.30am – 2.30pm, selling handmade babywear, homewares, magazines and newspapers. On Thursdays the store also stocks home-cooked cakes, slices, biscuits and preserves, but it’s best to go early because things sell out!
