From the Monash Girl Guides about their chosen charity:
“They have recently opened amazing new premises for children and their fundraising for necessary equipment and research is in real need of support. As this hospital is in our zone and would be the closest for our Guides, their families and friends – we felt it our duty to contribute in a substantial way to assist with the health of those in our community.
This is also an educative opportunity for our Guides to have a better understanding of the extent of what the hospital system does for our community and how it is a place where we can go for help to make lives better and be supported at times of difficulty for families. A focus on health, safety and helping others is why we know Monash Children’s Hospital is a charity we will strive to support.”
