More help for Linstead hospital through Tru-Juice partnership

LINSTEAD Public Hospital has received more support through its five-year partnership with the Tru-Juice 5K Run/Walk and 20K Cycle initiative, which raised $1.2 million from its seventh staging of the annual off-road event earlier this year.

The money raised has been put toward the purchase of a blood analyser and an ultrasound machine for the hospital, which provides critical health care to the St Catherine populace.

Peter McConnell, managing director of Trade Winds Citrus Limited — manufacturers of Tru-Juice — is pleased with the partnership and said: “We recognise the importance of sustainable community development and remain committed to improving health care in the Linstead community and throughout Jamaica.”

According to Tru-Juice Brand Manager Lauren Mahfood, the June staging was the most successful one to date.
