Old Bega Hospital

Alice Gilmour of Bega was the winner of the Friends of the Old Bega Hospital Flight Centre $5000 travel voucher raffle. The ticket was drawn by Andrew Ogilvie at the Old Bega Hospital on Tuesday, February 13.

The raffle is one of three major fundraisers by the Friends of the Old Bega Hospital, the others being a trivia night in mid-winter and the Raise the Roof Spring Fair in October. All proceeds go toward the restoration of the  historic building damaged by fire in 2004.

The Old Bega Hospital Trust is in its final discussions with Melbourne architects, Siblings, on the plans for the restored building to be a vibrant community cultural and tourist centre.
