Northern Health Foundation – Car Raffle

Northern Health Foundation Major Raffle raises important funds to support patient care and the purchase of medical equipment.

Launched in early July, this year’s raffle will make a real difference for our patients with IBD through the purchase an Intestinal Ultrasound (IUS).

IUS is used on patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) to help diagnose and monitor conditions such as Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis. IBD can be debilitating and cause severe complications when not monitored and treated appropriately.

Proudly supported by our major sponsor, Maxxia, the raffle aims to raise $150,000 to fund this important diagnostic equipment. At present, any patients requiring this service need to be referred to alternative health services. Introducing IUS to Northern Health will alleviate the need for patients in the northern community to travel further to receive the care they need, and will help provide better outcomes for our patients.

This year the total prize pool includes:

First prize:

A stunning brand new Toyota Corolla Hybrid Hatch – RRP $30,393.40 (includes registration)

Second prize:

Helicopter Joy Flight – RRP $4,500

Third prize:

UPPAbaby VISTA V2 Pram and Bassinet – RRP $2,099

Fourth prize:

One night in Mantra Epping Penthouse Suite including Breakfast and Dinner for two – RRP $750

Anglicare

Foster care

As you may be aware, Anglicare provides support to some of the most vulnerable families in Victoria. The Department of Human Services Child Protection Unit have declared that our local communities are currently in crises to meet the increasing demand for placing children in out of home care. Anglicare’s role is to recruit, train and support the special families who voluntarily provide foster care to vulnerable children. Due to the current crises, we are desperately seeking to increase the number of foster carers to ensure these children can be placed in a safe and nurturing home. Foster Carers come from all walks of life – you don’t have to be a superhero! Contact Anglicare on 8470 9999, anglicarevic.org.au

Report Racism

 report_racism_hires

Report Racism encourages Aboriginal people to tell the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission (the Commission) about any experience of racism, including discrimination in a shop or service. As well as reporting directly to Victoria Police or the Commission, people can now report racism at some local community organisations or online (www.reportracism.com.au).

To deal with racism in Victoria, we need to know where and when it happens, how often and who’s doing it. As a community, we can work together to raise awareness about racism in Victoria and work together to stop it.
