The Northern Lights Community Development Corporation has come through with a major donation to Victoria Hospital.


Today, Corporation Manager Eddie Head, presented the hospital’s maternity unit with a cheque for $50,000.


The money will be used to buy a new operating table for the unit.


Chairman of the Hospital’s foundation, Rob Dalziel, says this isn’t the first time they received financial assistance from Northern Lights.


The hospital is attempting to raise $750,000 for the maternity unit and Dalziel says they’re at the $430,000 mark.


Over 1300 babies were born in the hospital last year.
