The RBWH Foundation is the charity arm of Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH), Queensland’s largest hospital. The Foundation’s role is to fill that funding gap. Money raised by RBWH Foundation is used to fund research on the campus, purchase vital pieces of equipment and enable key health professionals to attend additional training programs, conferences and seminars. To raise these funds, the Foundation relies heavily on the support of the community. It is through the generosity of many individuals, businesses and community groups that we are able to assist the hospital in its life-saving work. The Foundation has a small shop at RBWH staffed by volunteers that sells a variety of handcrafted items.
Our best selling items are small knitted toys and baby cardigans that visitors purchase as gifts for newborn babies. We are also gratefully accepting items for the Maternity Ward, specifically bassinets blankets (approximately 60cm square). All generous donations can be sent to Rita Grice, PO 94, Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, Qld 4029.
