It is a big donation from a local company to help build a new children’s hospital in Saskatoon.
Redhead Equipment is giving one-million dollars to the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan (CHF).
Gary Redhead, president of the company, presented CHF president and CEO Brynn Boback-Lane with the cheque on Friday.
“The operation and support of a Children’s Hospital in our province will benefit all of us and I am honoured to offer this donation to the Children’s Hospital Foundation on behalf of (my wife) Laura and myself and more importantly, all of the employees of Redhead Equipment,” said Redhead.
Boback-Lane says the donation will go a long way towards the new hospital.
“This significant contribution will greatly assist children and their families by providing specialized care at the new Children’s Hospital of Saskatchewan,” said Boback-Lane.
The new hospital will be connected to Royal University Hospital and is scheduled to open in 2016.
