Canberrans came together to make the festive season brighter for those spending Christmas in hospital away from family and friends. Thanks to you, we had the opportunity to distribute so many wonderful gifts to patients and their families at Canberra Hospital, University of Canberra Hospital and for the first time ever, North Canberra Hospital. Another highlight was the ability to facilitate choir performances, which echoed throughout the hospital hallways and corridors during the holiday period.
Canberra, you ensured no patient was without a gift on Christmas.
Let's take you on a heartwarming journey showcasing the profound impact of our collective efforts:
Patients supported in CHS and across outpatient areas
"It was really wonderful to receive these donations and the team look forward to handing out all these gifts to the patients on Christmas."

"We are very grateful, and I know our patients will be very touched and appreciative of the kindness of the donors, and the Foundation, for the gifts which you have so thoughtfully chosen for us."- Caroline McIntyre

In light of this heartwarming journey and the astounding impact you've made possible, please consider continuing the spirit of giving. Our Christmas Appeal is still open for donations till the end of this week. Your generosity, big or small, makes sure that initiatives such as Givemas are a resounding success year after year.
