The Victoria Hospitals Foundation is thanking a generous couple for a $100,000 estate donation.

Anna Evelyn and John Thomas Goodrick left the donation to the Building Care Together campaign, which helps purchase state-of-the-art equipment for Royal Jubilee Hospital’s new patient care centre.

“We know that this kind of donation speaks volumes about the person who made the gift since significant thought and planning was needed,” campaign co-chair Ted Hughes said in a statement.

The couple’s family friend, Jim Brownrigg, presented the donation at a press conference at Royal Jubilee Hospital on Thursday.

The donation brings the campaign total to $12,435,000.
