Rockingham General Hospital staff and volunteers have shown their generosity through a number of fundraising activities to help those in need over the festive season.

Our maternity unit held a fundraising Christmas-themed bake-off and collected food items, toiletries, decorations and toys in support of St Pio’s House of Hope – an organisation providing accommodation to mothers and children experiencing homelessness in Rockingham.

The patient support services team organised a collection of non-perishable items to enable SOUL Soup Patrol to feed the homeless and underprivileged in our community.

At the same time, our Aged Care and Rehabilitation Unit (ACRU) and medical ward combined to help Foodbank WA collect food items for those doing it tough this Christmas.

RGH A/Executive Director Kath Smith said the hospital was delighted to share the spirit of giving this Christmas particularly with those who are in need.

“We are proud to be able to make a difference in the community this Christmas,” Kath said.

“On behalf of the hospital, I wish all our patients and visitors a wonderful Christmas and a safe and happy start to 2017.”
