Today's Bake Sale and Book Stall

Posted by Kylie Flament on 22 October 2013
The Heart Centre for Children held a bake sale and book stall today on the ground floor of The Children's Hospital at Westmead and it was a roaring success, thanks to our in-house bakers and some wonderful donations from families too.  Thank you to everyone who helped out and to those who bought a little something, we hope you enjoyed it.  We certainly saw a few smiling faces!  We were raising money for a post-surgery pacemaker because we need a few more of them to put on babies and children after surgery, so that if the heart doesn't quite beat as it should, the pacemaker can intervene instantaneously.  It's really important that our patients have these so thank you again for the purchases and donations.  We raised $1,051 today so we need just $4,449 more to purchase another pacemaker!
