The Children?s Hospital at Westmead is a world leader in providing the best possible care for over 50,000 children and their families each year. Most of the state?s sickest children are treated at the Hospital, including those with severe burns, cancer or those requiring life-saving transplant surgery.
Research is seen as vitally important, with over 120 staff dedicated to finding the causes and cures of childhood illnesses through a range of ground-breaking research projects.
This unique blend of care and research is set within an environment where fun and laughter line the road to recovery.
The ?Berries 4 Kids? Charity has played its part in supporting the important work of The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.
Their generosity will make a huge difference to the lives of sick children and their families.
