Lawrence Morlaas, Hospital Fundraising Executive said: "It is fantastic to receive the support of Priory Rotary Club.  Theor efforts equate to the purchase of two wheelchairs, which will be of great use to our patients, enabling them to have greater freedom within the hospital to move around wards, attned clinics or to use our onsite facilities."
