The maternity ward of Gosford Hospital received a special delivery from the Woy Woy CWA Branch on June 4.
“To celebrate our 87th birthday on June 8, we are gifting a hamper to the first baby born on, or closest to, the 8th,” said Branch President, Jane Bowtell.
“Our branch has a strong history of supporting the health of women and babies.
“Our hall originally operated as a baby health centre for quite some time from the 1940s, and now hosts the BreastScreen van each year.
“It took our founder, Mrs Staples, 8 years to raise the funds to build our hall after founding the branch in 1932.
“We are so privileged to be able to carry on her good work, and the work of the many women before us.
“We cannot wait for the new parents, and baby, to receive our gift.
“We hope this is the beginning of a new tradition for many more years to come,” Bowtell said.
