60 million reasons to say thank you!

Woolworths customers and teams have raised $60m over 34 years

Woolworths and the Children’s Hospital Foundation have a truly special partnership, spanning more than 30 years. Since 1986, Woolworths team members and their generous customers have raised more than $60 million to work wonders for sick kids and their families.

This funding allows us to provide ground-breaking medical research, lifesaving medical equipment and support services to kids and their families in hospital.

Woolworths’ fundraising efforts have also enabled us to fund medical equipment in regional hospitals, including paediatric heart monitors, ultrasound equipment and respiratory therapy devices.
