  • the Information Desk in the foyer of the hospital;
  • a daily Children's Play Group in the Child and Adolescent Unit;

  • assistance with fund raising activities; and
  • support and assistance in various wards, including the Emergency Department, BreastScreen Clinic and the Community Rehabilitation Centre.

Whether you are available weekly, fortnightly, monthly or as required, your skills and contribution will be valued and appreciated.  In return for the investment of your time, you will get to be part of a friendly, enthusiastic group of volunteers and be rewarded by knowing that you are providing a valuable service for your local community.
