Emerald Hospital has Christmas in the bag
1 November 2018
Emerald Hospital staff take their caring nature a step further every year at Christmas time to support local women doing it tough, and this year is no different.
The team accepts donations as part of the “It’s in the Bag” Christmas campaign, giving the gift of a little luxury to women or girls who need some support.
Donations are accepted of bags containing toiletries and sanitary items, with the campaign running from November 16 to December 2.
This will be the third year the hospital has hosted the campaign. In 2016 130 bags were donated, and last year that number grew to 160. Staff hope to gather almost 200 bags this year.
Members of the community can drop bags at the front reception at Emerald Hospital. They can be either new or pre-loved, filled with essential and luxury items that will make any woman feel loved.
The bags will be distributed to local and neighbouring charities and hospitals who will give them to women experiencing hardship.
