The Prince Charles Hospital Giving Day

Looking for The Prince Charles Hospital Giving Day 2022?

Go to The Common Good’s Giving Day 2022

On Wednesday 20 October 2021, The Common Good will hold its inaugural Giving Day with all funds raised going towards special projects and patient care at The Prince Charles Hospital.

Our wonderful doctors, surgeons, nurses, rehabilitation workers and the broader Prince Charles Hospital teams are involved in their own Giving Day fundraising efforts. They are asking the community to join them in raising $250,000 to fund patient support programs, state of the art equipment and other key projects that will improve the quality of care and well-being for the community.

Key projects

There are a number of key projects that our 2021 Giving Day is supporting, including:

Therapy Dogs – weekly visits from therapy dogs to some of our most vulnerable patient groups including children, those experiencing dementia, palliative care patients and those experiencing mental health challenges. Click here to donate to this project.

Dementia Sensory Garden – a sensory oasis for moments of relaxation, curiosity and familiarity. The project includes new pathways, raised garden beds, murals, and furniture for our patients who are affected by dementia. Click here to donate to this project.

Rehabilitation Path to Recovery – many members of our community have unfortunately experienced stroke, illness or surgery that has impacted their ability to navigate uneven surfaces, pathways, steps or obstacles which are normally unavoidable. The Rehabilitation Path to Recovery recreates these environments to enable patients to build their confidence and strength in preparation for their transition home. Click here to donate to this project.

ICU of the Future – We know that the ICU is crucial in saving lives, but the environment can be traumatic with short and long term physical and psychological consequences. This project addresses the reduction of noise, regulation of light, reduction of night-time sleep disruptions and other environmental improvements to enable patients to recover quicker and with a higher quality of well-being. Click here to donate to this project.

Sky Garden – a respite area for older patients recovering from hip surgery. A beautiful indoor/outdoor room with fresh air, sunlight and greenery will give patients the motivation to keep mobile. Click here to donate to this project.

Sunrise Room – the renovation of a patio space to allow the frailest of patients to access fresh air, sunshine and entertainment activities. The space will also be used as a private and intimate sanctuary for families to say their final goodbyes. Click here to donate to this project.

How a Giving Day works

A Giving Day is a unique opportunity for people’s donations to have double the impact. All donations made on and before Wednesday 20 October 2021 will be doubled thanks to the generous donations of one of our matchers. For example, a gift of $50 will become $100, thanks to the kind contributions of people who have pledged their support already.

How you can help

Take advantage of the opportunity to maximise the impact of your support and join the hundreds of doctors, nurses and frontline health workers at The Prince Charles Hospital who are working hard to raise vital funds.

We are pleased to announce that The Prince Charles Hospital Giving Day raised over $265,000. We couldn’t have done it without you, so from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU.
