Through the ongoing support of our sponsors and partners, Echuca Regional Health can fund health projects and vital equipment that make a sincere difference to the lives of our patients and their families.
Blue Ribbon Foundation Echuca Branch
The Echuca Branch of the Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation has been active since 2006. Funds raised by the Echuca Branch support the purchase of vital equipment for the George Henry Taylor Emergency Department and Peter Geddes Short Stay Unit at Echuca Regional Health and other key projects. In 2017, the Echuca branch of the Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation donated $100,000 to Echuca Regional Health for the installation of a short stay unit within the emergency department in honour of Senior Constable Peter Geddes.
The Echuca Branch conducts major fundraising events each year within the Echuca Moama community. For more information on the Echuca Branch of the Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation follow them on Facebook, visit their website or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Girls Night Out (GNO) Echuca Moama
The Echuca Moama Girls Night Out (GNO) charity raises funds for the GNO Oncology Department Supportive Care Program which was established in partnership with Echuca Regional Health in 2008 to provide meaningful assistance to local cancer patients. Those funds are helping to provide individuals and families with financial support to cover the hidden costs of cancer treatment – things like counselling, rent payments, wigs, alternative therapies, lymphodeama garments, fuel cards, accommodation, home care and child care.
In addition to raising funds for the oncology department, GNO also helped secure vital funding from the McGrath Foundation for a dedicated McGrath Breast Care Nurse who commenced work at ERH in 2012.
GNO’s major fundraising event ‘Lazy Sunday Afternoon’ is held in May each year. For further information or to make a donation anytime visit www.gnoechucamoama.com.au. GNO can also be followed on Facebook or Instagram.
Make Your Mark Campaign
In June 2012 ten volunteer members of the Echuca Moama community had a vison to raise sufficient funds to ensure that when completed, this new hospital would contain state of the art equipment. These enthusiastic, passionate and committed community members developed the brand ‘ You deserve the best, its your hospital. Make Your Mark’.
