Over the 2018 Christmas period IHF Volunteers prepared beautifully wrapped gifts at Redbank Plaza Shopping Centre, and this meant shoppers could shop longer and rest easy at Christmas!
Ipswich Hospital Foundation Fundraising Coordinator Katherine Wyman said the partnership with Redbank Plaza is so valuable to the IHF.
“Thanks to Redbank Plaza Shopping Centre for their support presenting the gift wrapping station. They also supplied the beautiful paper, ribbons and the space for the volunteers to work.
“The funds raised represent a great success with over $3500 received thanks to gift wrapping donations from shoppers.
“Our wonderful volunteers contributed a total of 276 hours performed by 46 volunteers. Champions!
“I’d also like to acknowledge Quest Apartments Ipswich for offering their lovely space to host our gift wrap tutorial ahead of the gift wrapping service,” she said.
The children of West Moreton will benefit from the funds raised, ensuring IHF can continue to support patient comfort schemes and the purchase of medical equipment.
