Sick children at Bundaberg Hospital will benefit from a $18,803.61 donation from Sea FM’s recent Give Me Five For Kids fundraiser held in June.
The money will be presented to the Bundaberg Health Services Foundation during a special presentation on the children’s ward on Tuesday, September 4 at 10.30am.
Health Services Foundation manager Maria Burnet congratulated the team from Sea FM on this month-long fundraiser particularly in a difficult fundraising climate.
“All their hard work and effort is commendable and those members of the community and businesses that got behind this project also should be congratulated,’’ she said.
All money will stay local and will assist paediatric patients at Bundaberg Hospital. This year’s wish list includes a range of equipment (non-government funded) to help children seeking medical treatment.
The Bundaberg Health Services Foundation was established in 1999 as the fundraising arm of the Bundaberg Hospital and is now co-ordinating all community donations to Bundaberg Hospital.
