Helping hand for sick kids

SICK children at Bundaberg Hospital will benefit from a $19,666 donation from SeaFM's recent Give Me Five For Kids fundraiser.

The money was presented to the Bundaberg Health Services Foundation at the children's ward on Thursday.

Health Services Foundation manager Maria Burnet congratulated the team from SeaFM on the month-long fundraiser, particularly in a difficult fundraising climate.

All money will stay local and will help paediatric patients at Bundaberg Hospital.

This year's wishlist includes a range of non-government-funded equipment which will not only benefit the children's ward but other departments such as physiotherapy, child health, child development services and special care.

"During the past four years the fundraiser has been held, Give Me Five for Kids has donated just over $60,000 which is an amazing effort," Ms Burnet said.

For more information about how you can donate goods or provide monetary donations to help sick patients and their families, please contact the Foundation on 4150 2863.
