Foresters Financial Set Up Serene Sitting Spaces

Members of Foresters Financial Lakehead Legacy work on putting together a new picnic table for the Courtyard at Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre. They’ve donated over $45,000 to support several departments and to make trips to our Hospital more comfortable.

Having a comfortable spot to sit down can never be underestimated. Thanks to Foresters Financial Lakehead Legacy, Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre now has two new spots where one can pause and find a spot to sit outside.

Recently they installed a new bench at the East Entrance, along with picnic tables in the ground floor courtyard (pictured above); an especially lovely spot to sit in the summer and enjoy the surrounding gardens.

Kevin Herman, Canada Regional Councillor from Foresters Financial remarked, “We’re always very proud to give back to the Health Sciences Centre. We know the benches we installed last year are really well used, so it was an easy decision to add more.”

Altogether Foresters Financial has given over $45,000 to several areas of our Hospital including Paediatrics, the Cancer Centre and, most recently, to items that can make a trip here more comfortable. “We’ve installed benches, but we also continue to assemble comfort kits for the Emergency Department,” said Herman. “The kits, which include basic hygiene items, have been very well received by both staff and patients. It’s nice to know we’re making a difference!”
