The Common Good’s 2022 Giving Day

We did it! We surpassed our $250,000 goal for The Common Good’s 2022 Giving Day, and we couldn’t have done it without you!

We raised a total of $252,772 for our Giving Day Campaign, thanks to our generous community of supporters, incredible corporate partners, volunteers, and the hospital staff who raised awareness of projects close to their hearts.

Along with smashing our fundraising goal, the hospital staff, visitors, and everyone else who attended hailed the festival-style event a fantastic and fun day.

 

 

Many people gathered to witness the action or work up a sweat at the fitness competitions, whereas others enjoyed browsing the Christmas markets and indulging in some delicious food truck feeds. Police dogs, Kujo and Kevin, were a big hit and didn’t shy away from the attention.

Plus, a few wards swapped their scrubs for some smile-inducing costumes (And if you spotted four dancing dinosaurs roaming the grounds of The Prince Charles Hospital – you weren’t seeing things)! The Children’s ward took home top prize at the dress-up competition for their neon 80s ensembles and dinosaur friends.

This was the second annual Giving Day at The Prince Charles Hospital and the first Giving Day at Caboolture Hospital.

Many people within the Caboolture community showed their support on the day, and it was fantastic to see so many people enjoying the sausage sizzle, afternoon tea and other festivities.

The funds raised this year will be used to support a range of vital, patient-centred projects within The Prince Charles Hospital and Caboolture Hospital, including a village-like community space within The Prince Charles Hospital’s Cognitive Assessment and Management Unit, expanding the Grandfriends program at The Prince Charles Early Education Centre, and memory corridors to promote mobility and cognitive stimulation for older patients at both hospitals.

We are also so grateful to everyone who made the fundraising efforts a huge success!  We couldn’t have reached this impressive milestone without the help of our generous supporters, volunteers, and hospital staff. Thank you so much!
