A gift basket of goodies was a welcome Friday surprise for Dunedin Hospital emergency department nurses on the 6th of July. Rotary Club of Dunedin Club delivered the treats to thank the nursing staff for the great job they do.

Organiser Carmen Houlahan said the club was planning a series of random acts of kindness and ED staff were an easy choice as the first recipients. “As a family we’ve had our kids in ED and the staff were great.”

Dunedin Rotary president Lisa Wilson said she hoped other clubs and organisations would follow its lead with some acts of kindness of their own. “It’s an easy thing to do. It’s about acknowledging members of our community and saying thanks for their work.”
