game win over Waikerie in Riverland
division one tennis on Saturday.

mined Berri-view outfit.

ed matches, with Troy Lehmann, Penny
Kroehn and Shaun Steele all triumphant.

Waikerie division one tennis team suffers one-game loss
Golf day helps raise
$2200 for cuddle cot
MORE than $2000 was raised to
help purchase a cuddle cot for the
Waikerie Hospital via a charity
golf day held at the Waikerie Golf
and Country Club on Sunday.
The cuddle cot will be purchased
by the Emerikus Land Foundation,
despite the event falling short of the
Emerikus Land Foundation direc-
tor Sherri-Leigh Land said the founda-
tion would continue to fundraise for
the remaining amount.
“The event was really good,” she
“We managed to raise $2200 towards
the cost of the cuddle cot, and we will
continue to fundraise and will accept
donations from people for the remain-
ing costs of the cot.
“The weather was quite hot, so
I was pleased that so many people
“Director of nursing and midwifery
at the Waikerie Hospital, Murray Dal-
gleish, said once the hospital receives
the cot he will make it available to use
for other hospitals in the Riverland, so
families can share it around.
“People can also donate or fund-
raise the full amount of $4500, and they
can have a cot dedicated with a plaque
to anyone they want.”
Thirty-two people attended the golf
day, which included a three-person
ambrose competition, a sausage sizzle
Mrs Land said the cots gave fami-
lies more time with their babies after
they had died.
“Cuddle cots are very special and
important machines,” she said.
“They give families more time with
their babies, and the aim of our foun-
dation is to have a cuddle cot in every
hospital in Australia.”
The foundation is in honour of
Sherri-Leigh and Ben Land’s daughter,
Emerikus, who died from a placental
abruption in March last year.
Donations can be made via the web-
org.au), with all contributions over $2
being tax deductible.
