Lions Club medical equipment lending program

The St. Margaret’s Bay Lions Club has an extensive collection of medical equipment it’s eager to lend out to Bay residents as needed.

One happy and grateful user of the Lions Club medical equipment program is shown in the photo. Bridget Fitzgerald (seated in scooter) of Upper Tantallon is joined by (from left) Lions Blaine MacDonald, Doreen MacDonald and Leonard Bugbee, who is the club’s social services chairman.

Barbara Way, the club’s president, says inventory includes wheelchairs, scooters, walkers, canes, medical boots, commodes, bedpans, k-dishes and hospital beds. The available inventory changes somewhat, depending on what is presently out on loan, but all the equipment is loaned out at no cost to those who need it. Borrowers must arrange for someone to pick up and drop off any borrowed equipment, as the Lions Club is not able to do so.

For more information, contact Lions Club members Parkesh Kapoor at or Leonard Bugbee at
