This past holiday season, we saw corporate donors go all in for kids’ health right across the country and we could not thank you enough. Your support takes sick kids one step closer to Christmas away from a hospital bed and spending it at home with their families. Thank you to you all. We deeply appreciate your continued support!

The Cherry on Top

Thank you and congratulations to 2023 Cherry King Narinder Singh Badhan, CEO of QE foods, for winning  the coveted box of Wandin Valley Farms cherries at the Sydney Markets Limited Foundation Cherry Auction in November, with an incredible bid of $50,000! 

What’s more, Sydney Markets Credit Services generously donated an additional $20,000, making a grand total of $70,000 raised to support Sydney Children's Hospitals NetworkKids Cancer Centre Regional Oncology Outreach Program. This generosity will help kids fighting cancer across rural and regional NSW access world-class care close to home.

Toymate takes the next step

Thank you to our fantastic partners at Toymate, who have been supporting SCHF since 2018. Toymate has generously donated gifts and toys to the value of $450,000, spreading festive joy to sick children and their families over the Christmas period.  

Toymate has now taken their commitment to the next level, with their first ever in-store campaign for SCHF. Across their stores in NSW and ACT, they're rallying customers for a checkout roundup drive to raise vital funds for SCHF. The response has been outstanding and demonstrates the community's generosity and support for children in need.  

Finally, a special acknowledgment to the team at Tyro Payments, whose technology and products made this fundraising initiative possible. We're grateful for partners like Toymate and Tyro Payments who are working with us to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who need it most.
