St Vincent’s Private Hospital Werribee (SVPHW) was the charity partner for the 2021 Giving Tree campaign at Stockland Point Cook. Shoppers were invited to donate gifts or make financial donations at the Stockland Point Cook Shopping Centre Wishing Tree.
As the majority of the gifts were for children, East Melbourne’s St Vincent’s Kids ward were the grateful recipients of the generous gifts from the Wyndham community. These presents will provide hours of entertainment for the young patients on the ward.
Lucy Longworth, Paediatric Nurse Unit Manager, St Vincent’s Private Hospital, a stay in hospital for any child, especially during covid times where we have no visitors, can be a very daunting time.
“The gifts received allow us to brighten their day and hopefully make their hospital experience more enjoyable. We would like to thank everyone who donated to the Stockland giving tree, the number of gifts was so kind and generous. It really does have a huge impact."
