A Tax Giving Appeal for all ages

The end of the financial year is a time many people contribute to fundraising. Your tax deductible donation to our Tax Giving Appeal will help us purchase equipment for our youngest patients and older adults using our health service. 

We'd like to buy a neonatal ventilator to support babies struggling to breathe on their own. We're also keen to replace 22 cushions which reduce the risk of pressure injuries in patients who have limited mobility. Click on the Make A Donation link or contact LRH Fundraising on 5173 8577.
