How to support your Hospital this Christmas

Christmas is a time for giving and the amazing South Australian public love to support children and families in the Women’s and Children’s Hospital at this time of year.

Here is your go-to guide on how to donate to the Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation (WCH Foundation) this Christmas 2020. 

From making a cash donation to purchasing a gift online, visiting your local Big W store to take part in the token campaign, or sending a virtual Christmas card, there are many ways you can support brilliant care in the Hospital and brighten the lives of patients and families.

If you have any questions, please call the WCH Foundation on 08 8464 7900.

🎁 Donate to our Christmas appeal

Brothers Connor and Declan are palliative care patients in the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.

This Christmas, the Lovett family have bravely shared the story of their sons Connor and Declan.

Connor, 7, and Declan, 5, are both diagnosed with leukodystrophy, an incurable neurological disorder that affects the central nervous system. Both boys are under the care of the Palliative Care Service at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.

Please watch their story here and donate today to support children like Connor and Declan every step of their hospital journey.
