IHF Volunteers Gift Wrapping to better health!
Over the 2018 Christmas period IHF Volunteers prepared beautifully wrapped gifts at Redbank Plaza Shopping Centre so shoppers could shop longer and rest easy at Christmas!
Ipswich Hospital Foundation Fundraising Coordinator Katherine Wyman said the partnership with Redbank Plaza is so valuable to IHF.
“Thanks to Redbank Plaza Shopping Centre for their support presenting the gift wrapping station, they supply the beautiful paper, ribbons and the space!
“The funds raised represent a great success with over $3500 received thanks to gift wrapping donations from shoppers.
“Our wonderful volunteers contributed a total of 276 hours performed by 46 volunteers. Champions!
“I’d also like to acknowledge Quest Apartments Ipswich for offering their lovely space to host our gift wrap tutorial ahead of the gift wrapping service,” she said.
The IHF Sun Protection 4Health Program will benefit from the funds raised, ensuring IHF can supply more sunscreen to the community through local schools, pools and community events.
