Our Tax Giving appeal is underway!

Help us to purchase a surgical retractor system for our busy operating theatres.

Handheld retractors are currently used to keep an incision open or hold back tissue or organs. A surgical retractor system however is mounted to the operating table, freeing up our team to continue operating on a patient safely and quickly.

You can make a difference to the lives of people in our community. Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible. Click on the Make A Donation link or contact LRH Fundraising on 5173 8577. Thank you for your support!
