Families of children being treated in Grafton Base Hospital are set to benefit, thanks to Livable’s kind-hearted donation of $5,000 to Kids in Capes.
Kids in Capes is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to create awareness of children living with disabilities and additional needs in the Clarence Valley. They also fundraise to support the Children and Adolescents Ward at the Grafton Base Hospital.
Founder of Kids in Capes, Zoe Taylor, said the funding will go towards creating more of a home environment for families at the hospital.
“The support from Livable will help us purchase additional equipment, toys, spare clothes and play mats to create a more homely feel in the children’s ward,” Mrs Taylor said.
“We’ll also be able to expand our food subscription service to offer parents and carers a healthy and nutritious meal whatever time of day they need it.
“We are thrilled with Livable’s generous donation and cannot thank them enough for their support,” she said.
Livable’s Chair, Ruth Faragher, said as a not-for-profit organisation that provides disability and family services to the Clarence Valley, we are proud to give back to our community.
We recognise the wonderful staff in the children’s ward and are pleased to support the nurturing work that they do,” Ms Faragher said.
“Especially at this time of the year, spending time in the hospital during the festive season, as a patient or a staff member, takes us away from loved ones.
“Through Kids in Capes, we are delighted that our support will provide some comfort and help make a positive difference to families with sick children across the region.”
