Liverpool Hospital’s Paediatric Unit was delighted to receive three Dalcross Ultima single sofa beds, purchased with the $8,173 raised at the 2012 Georges Fair Spring Fair.
The sofa beds have a removable seat cushion which facilitates their use as chairs by day and single beds at night, allowing parents to spend the night in hospital with their child.
Representatives of Georges Fair met with Liverpool Hospital staff and patients on Monday to view first-hand on how the chairs are benefiting sick local children and their families.
“These sofa beds provide parents with a comfortable place to sleep overnight while they remain at the bedside of their sick child,” said to Shobna Wati, Nursing Unit Manager, Liverpool Hospital Paediatric Unit.
“Having a parent close by helps to reduce a child’s anxiety while they are in hospital, in an unfamiliar environment,” she said.
The Georges Fair Spring Fair has raised more than $17,000 for the Liverpool Hospital Paediatric Unit since 2010.
“Liverpool Hospital is very thankful for the donation of these sofa beds and the continued support of the Georges Fair Spring Fair,” said Ms Wati.
The Georges Fair Spring Fair is a community event, hosted by Investa Property Group, developer of Georges Fair, to provide an opportunity for residents to get to know their neighbours and enjoy their community with family and friends.
“The 2012 Spring Fair at Georges Fair was the most successful yet, with approximately 3000 people attending throughout the day. We were delighted to raise more than $8000 for Liverpool Hospital Paediatric Unit and thank everyone who attended and helped to achieve this,” said Nathan Huon, Senior Development Manager, Georges Fair.
“We’re already planning for the next fair which will be held on 22 September 2013. We encourage everyone to put the date in the family calendar," Mr Huon said.
More than 400 families are now living at Georges Fair, a contemporary master-planned residential community under construction in Moorebank. Land is available for purchase from $273,500. Purchasers can choose from 250 contemporary home designs from seven of Australia’s leading home builders.
Georges Fair is located on the corner of Nuwarra Road and Maddecks Avenue, Moorebank. The on-site Sales and Information Centre is open from 10am to 5pm, seven days a week.
