Largest Pledge to Date Received from Lucknow & District Kinsmen
Largest Pledge to Date Received from Lucknow & District Kinsmen

The Lucknow Kinsmen Club has committed to contribute $200,000 to the Wingham & District Hospital Foundation’s Our Hospital, Our Future campaign over the next five years. To date, this is the largest gift received by the campaign.

The Lucknow Kinsmen have a long history of supporting the Wingham & District Hospital and all their local Hospital. Since 2013, the Kinsmen Club has contributed $10,000 annually to the Wingham & District Hospital Foundation’s Radiothon project and they are committed to continuing that tradition throughout the completion of this new five year campaign pledge.

Kinsmen Club member Rick McMurray said the group wanted to support the Hospital redevelopment project because “the Wingham Hospital is important to our community now and well into the future”

The funds for this significant gift were raised in large part through the Kinsmen’s wildly successful Music in the Fields event. Planning for the 2016 event is already underway with early bird tickets going on sale December first with more information available at www.musicinthefields.ca.

The generous gift from the Lucknow Kinsmen will support the Our Hospital, Our Future campaign’s $4 million goal to fund significant redevelopment and expansion of six departments at the Wingham & District Hospital, replacement of digital imaging equipment and creation a one-stop-shop community healthcare campus. Bart Cameron Deputy Chair of the Our Hospital, Our Future campaign said, “We’re extremely grateful to the Kinsmen Club. It is wonderful to see that amount of generosity and enthusiasm come from the Lucknow community and to know that they support the project”. The campaign is now nearing the $1 million milestone.
