The Euroz Big Walk for Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation on Sunday 17 March is a chance for our community to…
Families and staff of PMH have had the opportunity to say goodbye to the hospital that has played such a huge part in the community of Western Australia for almost 109 years.
The Foundation funded Thank you PMH Day on 11 April. It was a special time for staff and patients to celebrate the hospital and reflect on over a century of caring for the children of WA. There was a sausage sizzle, visits to wards plus a special ‘Mirror me’ photo booth where patients and staff could have their photo taken and leave a thankyou message for PMH. There was also a PMH wall covered in messages of thanks from grateful families and staff.
Remembering PMH took place on 27 May in the Beasley Auditorium at Perth Modern School. It was an opportunity to come together to remember loved ones who are no longer with us and honour the children, families and staff of our incredible hospital. Guests were treated to a thought provoking memorial, wonderful performances from Paula Parore and her choir and heartfelt speeches, touching on the importance of PMH to the community.
A photo montage bought a tear to the eye, as guests were reminded of the thousands of kids and staff that have been the heart and soul of our hospital over its decades of service.
On 30 May, families had their final chance to enjoy a BBQ dinner in Megazone. Over the past six years, thousands of PMH patients, their families and hospital staff have visited a Stitches’ Family BBQ to enjoy dinner, the companionship of others and a welcome break from the monotony of the hospital routine. The BBQs were started thanks to long-time supporters Steggles. Their amazing staff have cooked and served at more than fifty BBQs, volunteered over 1,000 hours of personal time and provided over 12,000 meals to make the experience of children, their families and staff at PMH a happier one.
PMH may have closed its doors, but the memories will be carried over to Perth Children’s Hospital.
