Maternity raffle raises over $3000

Maternity Unit raffle drawThe Maternity Unit Raffle was drawn yesterday at 11.00am in the NHW board room. 30 lucky winners won some fantastic prizes that included; accommodation, beauty and cosmetics, local wines and an array of vouchers from local businesses to name but a few.

A huge thank you to everyone who donated prizes or purchased tickets in our Maternity Unit Raffle. With your support, we have raised over $3,000 which will go towards a range of equipment that we desperately require:

  • Cardio Respiratory Monitor – This checks the breathing, heart rate and oxygen levels of newborn babies. Currently, we only have 2 and need to rely upon the Paediatric Units machines as backups.
  • Bili Meter and Bili Blanket – Treats Jaundice
  • Portable Radiant Heater – To sit above the cots to keep newborn babies warm

You can also support our Maternity Unit and Special Care Nursery by donating online and specifying ‘Maternity’ in the section ‘Special Message’ located under ‘Donation Information’.
