Former Grease Monkey remembered

The Grampians Grease Monkeys Car Club recently donated funds to the EGHS Oncology Unit and Palliative Care Area.

Member Gerald Hurkens passed away in 2021 and the Grease Monkeys and Gerald’s family donated $2,000 in memory of Gerald and as a thank you for the care he received at East Grampians Health Service.

Club members created quite the spectacle when they arrived with their amazing vehicles and lined them up in front of EGHS, with members handing over the cheques to EGHS chief executive Nick Bush.

Mr Bush thanked the members for their generous donations.

The funds will make a significant contribution towards new equipment and services in our Oncology Unit and new Palliative Care Area at the health service and be of great benefit to our patients,” he said.

Grampians Grease Monkeys is a pre-1965 car club, established in 2013 for car enthusiasts.
