Tax Time - Focus on Falls

The end of the financial year is a time many people contribute to fundraising causes. You can donate online to our Focus on Falls Campaign as we raise money to purchase bed alarms for patients at risk of falling in our hospital. On average, one patient falls at LRH every day. We don't want it to be you or someone you love. Click on the Make A Donation link or contact LRH Fundraising on 5173 8577. Thank you for your kindness!
