The children’s ward at Barwon Health’s Geelong University Hospital has gotten into the Easter spirit, with sights of bunnies and colourful eggs filling the halls.

As everyone gets ready for the Easter long weekend from Good Friday, March 30, to Easter Monday, April 1, they are reminded of the families who may need to spend the holidays in hospital.

Torquay RSL started its 2024 Good Friday Appeal on December 17 and will distribute funding to regional health services, including Barwon Health, through the Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH).

Coordinator Peter McMahon said Torquay RSL had set an $80,000 fundraising target to help every child receive the best possible care locally.

“Now RCH excellence will flow to our regional hospitals from funds raised in 2024,” he said.

Barwon Health nurses Eden Whittaker, Brielle Hardiman, and Amelia Black, along with Lotte and Blair, are pictured enjoying Easter fun in the children’s ward.
