Music Legend Sayer to make CBR Feel Like Giving
In a year in which our health system and those who work in it have been so critical to our health and safety, Canberrans are encouraged to support the Canberra Hospital Foundation’s inaugural CAN GIVE DAY on Thursday 26 November.
CAN GIVE DAY will be a 24-hour ‘festival of giving’, in the style of telethons of days gone by, and will raise funds to help the Foundation support patients in hospital or those receiving treatment.
Joining the festivities will be 1970s music icon and Foundation Ambassador Leo ‘You make me feel like dancing’ Sayer.
Thank You Canberra for Caring and Sharing
Canberra’s health care workers have been overwhelmed by the generosity and support the local community has provided them throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
The Canberra Hospital Foundation’s #CHFCareShare has been so popular it has already received close to 3,700 donations for our healthcare workers at Canberra Health Services.
CHF CEO Helen Falla said the variety of donations came with a clear message: “thank you for keeping us safe”. “Although we are not through this pandemic yet, it’s clear that the Canberra community values highly the nurses, doctors, allied health professionals, security teams, cleaning staff and administrators who are unrelenting in their drive to keep us safe and healthy,” Ms Falla said.
