In an extraordinarily generous spirit, John Carter was determined to support the Cedar Ward in St. Vincent’s Private Hospital, reflecting the time that his beloved wife, Janis, spent there for the final months of her life. In the first action in this support, John, together with his colleagues in the Radio Station Training Crew raised the huge sum of €5,000. John followed this with a personal donation of an additional €5,000 meaning that the Cedar Ward capability is enhanced by a total of €10,000. On behalf of our patients we are truly grateful for this fantastic kindness.
We cannot think of a better way of expressing John’s approach than his own statement highlighting his motivation for the support:
“On behalf of myself and my Radio Station Training Crew, we wish to acknowledge Janis and our thoughts and hearts go out to all the staff in Cedar Ward, and indeed to all the staff in Vincent’s Private Hospital, along with Vincent’s Main Hospital.
The work and care is incredible by each and every one of the staff and this is just a small token from the Radio Station Training Crew. My sincere thanks to you all. John Carter”.
