Be Part of Redcliffe Giving Day 2023 and Help Double the Difference

Donate at Redcliffe Giving Day 2023 and Double the Difference

Did you know that generous Raise it for Redcliffe Hospital partners will be doubling all donations received between 1 September and 12 October 2023 as part of the annual Redcliffe Giving Day fundraising initiative?

Giving Day is an annual fundraising event for Raise it for Redcliffe Hospital, organised by Redcliffe Hospital in partnership with RBWH Foundation. Funds raised will help support the hospital’s patient care, health research, staff wellbeing and other healthcare initiatives.

In 2022, a research study was partly funded by the Giving Day. The initiative, which aimed at helping hospital patients who will undergo surgeries make healthy pre-operative lifestyle changes, was overseen by Senior Dietitian Alyce Nissen. Particularly, the study sought to reduce smoking and alcohol consumption whilst enhancing nutrition and addressing iron deficiency concerns.

“The key will be to empower patients by allowing them to complete a self-generated screening survey and then take ownership of the recommendations,” said Ms Nissen.

For this year’s event, the priority funding will go towards the Palliative Care Unit’s renovation project. The renovation will involve the common areas to make patients with life-limiting illness and their visitors more comfortable during their stay.

Simone Garske, CEO of the RBWH Foundation, said that the project aims to provide the unit with a homely atmosphere for patients and their visitors. 

“We want to add a touch of home to the unit so patients and visitors can enjoy quality time together,” said RBWH Foundation CEO Simone Garske. 

“Palliative Care has a special role in our community and by giving together, we can enhance this experience for hundreds of people every year.”

You can take part in this event for a cause on 12 October 2023. There will be activities and fundraising teams at both Redcliffe Hospital and 99.7 Bridge FM Park – 75 Anzac Ave, Redcliffe (next to the Museum).
