C.R.E.A.M.E.R Fund

The CREAMER fund was started in the early 1990s with donations from families in memory of their loved ones:

  • Mr Ronald Hardy
  • Mr Bill (Clive) Wyatt
  • Miss Maureen Gunary

CREAMER is an acronym for Community Resource Equipment And Medical Equipment Reserve Fund. The Fund has grown considerably over the years with tremendous support from the community and various fundraising events being organised. Many people feel that donations provide a lasting memorial to their loved ones.

The aim of the CREAMER Fund is to help provide health resources and equipment to enable members of the local community to receive the best possible health care, as near to their homes as feasible.
