Our SWH Warrnambool Auxiliary has secured the August-24 debut screening of a movie we’re really excited about: a new comedy called THE MIRACLE CLUB.

Starring Maggie Smith, Kathy Bates, Agnes O’Casey and Laura Linney, three generations of Irish girlfriends win a pilgrimage to the sacred French town of Lourdes in 1967.

As always, this film will be screened on the ground floor of Warrnambool’s Capitol Cinema. The doors will open for morning tea at 10am (you’ll be given your very own box of Tasty Plate morsels) with the 90-minute film starting at 11am. Please note dietary requirements cannot be catered for.

$30 tickets (which include the morning tea) are on sale now. You can get yours by phoning Margot on 0455 029 125.

And, if you’ve been before, you’ll know there’s also a fabulous raffle. Tickets for this are $5.

Funds raised will help quicken the recovery times of local children having their tonsils out – by contributing to a $9,850 coblation system we’re currently fundraising for here at SWH. Our specialist ear, nose and throat surgeon will use this theatre equipment for coblation tonsillectomies. Coblation (a word derived from ‘controlled ablation’) for tonsillectomy is a subtotal removal of the tonsil and adenoid tissue. It’s less painful that a traditional tonsillectomy, reduces the risk of bleeding and provides a quicker recovery. Post-coblation, younger patients are frequently eating a normal diet within a few days and are frequently back at school or kinder a week after surgery, instead of a fortnight after.
