CAN GIVE DAY 2022 CHS Staff Fundraisers

Who will be the CAN GIVE DAY Master Cook? Help me secure my place in the Master Cook Challenge!

This CAN GIVE DAY will see four top cooks compete in the Master Cook Challenge, with three challenges to test their skill and grit! On Friday 21st October, I will be putting my cooking prowess and reputation on the line to raise funds for 'Your Space - Wellbeing Centre' at the Canberra Region Cancer Centre. 

I want to give patients and their families comfort, understanding and hope through their time in hospital or during treatment, and acknowledge the hard work and dedication of Canberra’s healthcare teams.

You can donate to me and help support exceptional patient care for people in our community, which includes the surrounding region. 

Funds raised go to support research, therapeutic programs, transformations of away-from-bed areas, and the purchase of speciality medical equipment, which enhances the patient experience throughout the year.

Please support my fundraising by making a tax-deductible donation to the Canberra Hospital Foundation for CAN GIVE DAY.
