The 2018 Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal in underway!

This year celebrates the 12th year of the Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal for Wellington Regional Children’s Hospital. The Foundation (as the official charity of Wellington Regional Children’s Hospital) is delighted to once again be working with Countdown to help fund the beds for our new Wellington Regional Children’s Hospital.  The financial contribution to Wellington Children’s Hospital over the years has been $1,371,972, which has funded a wide variety of projects and equipment for all areas within Child Health. We would like to thank all staff and customers for their support of this very worthy appeal.

This year’s appeal runs from 6 August to 28 October. Check out the local fundraisers going on at your store, purchase a raffle ticket at the Wellington Hospital Gift Shop, or ask at Countdown how you can further support the appeal. Thanks again Countdown for your ongoing support of Wellington Children’s Hospital!
