Llandovery’s x-ray machine appeal all set for the final push!


All eyes were on Llandovery Hospital as the hospital’s League of Friends launched the final push for their X-Ray appeal with the help of local rugby hero Rob McCusker.
The Scarlets captain and Wales international player was on hand to unveil a new eye catching board outside the hospital that will track the progress of the final stages of the appeal as it gets ever closer to its target of £225,000.
The Llandovery Hospital League of Friends launched the appeal in August 2013 to raise funds for a new state of the art x-ray machine for the benefit of local patients.
And in preparation for the new technology the university health board’s in-house design team have been hard at work to ensure the department will provide the best patient and staff environment possible.
Rob McCusker, said: "It is a great honour to have been invited here today to help support what is a great cause. The League of Friends have worked tirelessly to raise much needed funds in order to purchase and install the new x-ray machine which will benefit the people of Llandovery and the surrounding areas. I wish them all the very best in their final push to the £225,000 target."
The Friends of the hospital have already raised a fantastic £165,000 thanks to the generosity and spirit of the local community who have got involved from donation boxes to hosting after dinner talks with Warren Gatland.
Speaking at the launch of the final push, the Chairman of the Llandovery Hospital League of Friends Cllr Ivor Jackson said: “I am delighted to see so many people here this afternoon. The need for a new X-Ray department in Llandovery is essential for the people of Llandovery and the surrounding areas who have contributed so much in supporting this appeal. I would like to personally thank all the members of the League of Friends for their for all the hard work that they have done over the many years.”
Linda Williams, County Director and Commissioner for Carmarthenshire at Hywel Dda University Health Board said: “Medical technology is continually evolving and it is with thanks to the efforts of the local community that we hope to install a new state of the art X-Ray machine at Llandovery Hospital. On behalf of the University Health Board, I’d like to thank the League of Friends and everyone who has supported the appeal so far. I have no doubt that we’ll be updating the board very regularly!”
