z 25 Big Years of Impact I
Every child who comes through the Hospital doors relies on state-of-the-art equipment and expert teams to get them back home as quickly as possible.
Thankfully, one of the Foundation’s longest standing corporate partners has been helping make that happen. Big W has raised an incredible $7.4 million for sick kids over 25 years. From in-store fundraising across NSW, to workplace giving and community initiatives, Big W have unlocked vital funds that have made a lasting difference for patients and families in the Hospital.
The longstanding support from Big W over the years has allowed the Foundation to invest the funds where it is needed most – an approach which will impact the future.
But, it’s also you, the generous Big W customers who have helped fund pieces of equipment like paediatric bronchoscopes for newborns and infants with lifethreatening conditions, meaning the Hospital has access to the latest and greatest technologies.
Over recent years this commitment and openhandedness has also gone towards funding a Child Life Therapist, someone who plays a vital part ensuring that life remains as normal as possible for children and families during their stay in hospital.
And it doesn’t stop there. The support extends beyond this to contributing towards the purchasing of other essential life-saving equipment and medical research, paving the way for the future. While also ensuring there are enough toys to put a smile on every kid’s face!
The shared history between the Foundation and Big W is one that has prospered over the last 25 years, and one that will continue to flourish for many more to come.
Thank you Big W for making a significant difference for sick kids and their families.
