Beautiful gift from a former patient of the Paediatric Unit

Each Christmas, the Jones family goes above and beyond decorating their home to bring festive season cheer to their neighbourhood and raise funds to donate to community charities.

This year, the Joneses wanted to give back to the Children’s Unit at Coffs Harbour Health Campus where, more than 15 years ago, the family spent a lot of time with their son Matthew.

The funds raised over Christmas purchased a milk bottle warmer, which helps nursing staff reheat breast milk to the right temperature.

A big thank you to the Joneses, especially Matthew who gave out candy canes which helped with the fundraising. What a great Christmas present for our Paediatric Unit!
