AU – RRT Ipswich support Ipswich Hospital Foundation Christmas Appeal

Children in Hospital deserve some good playground equipment!  Ipswich Hospital has a newly refurbished Children’s Ward and there is just one thing missing – a playground.  Ipswich Hospital Foundation launched a Christmas Appeal to raise funds for the Children’s Ward, with the goal of providing them with a playground and outdoor area to complete the refurbishment project.

Ipswich Hospital Foundation advertised a celebration of the Christmas Appeal to thank the Supporters, inviting local businesses, organisations and individuals to enjoy a tour through the ward, refreshments and entertainment.  The Event also gave them the opportunity to hand out gifts in the Children’s Ward and meet other like-minded donors.

Rapid Relief Team offered to assist at the occasion and their offer was gladly accepted. So, throughout the event, RRT distributed water bottles to the enthusiastic contributors.

The highlight of the event for the sick children was Santa’s arrival.  They received gifts from him with bright smiles, and the nurses ensured that Santa was given a health check while he was there!

IHF were proud to announce that the Christmas Appeal had raised nearly $30,000.00 at the time of the event!


RRT members enjoyed the opportunity to show their support and look forward to assisting in further fundraising events for the Ipswich Hospital.
