21st March 2017 – The 6th annual OHS Leaders Summit Australia (Gold Coast) on the Gold Coast delivered joy in the way of $12,800 in donations raised during a lively and exciting charity auction. Held during the Networking Dinner on Wednesday 15 March, the auction was packed with fantastic prizes and delighted guests with all funds going to such a great cause – Bear Cottage.
Bear Cottage is the only children’s hospice in NSW, one of only two in Australia, and the only one in the world affiliated with a children’s hospital. It is a very special place that’s dedicated to caring for children with life-limiting conditions and their families. Located on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, in Manly, Bear Cottage is like a home away from home – as far removed from a hospital environment as possible. Bear Cottage is set up to provide excellence in paediatric medical care 24 hours a day, and their affiliation to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead means they have access to some of the best medical resources in the world.
Focus Network who hosts the OHS Leaders Summit Australia (Gold Coast) worked to bring together the prizes to be auctioned off at the Networking Dinner with over 180 top OHS leaders from around Australia supporting this initiative and digging deep to contribute to the total amount raised, “We would like to thank the 180+ OHS Leaders who attended the Networking Dinner at the 2017 OHS Leaders Summit Australia (Gold Coast) and we are really thrilled to be able to give back to the community and to support such a worthy cause such as Bear Cottage. This charity is close to our hearts and one that we feel so strongly about so to be able to support them means a lot – I know the $12,800 raised will be so well utilised,” said Focus Network CEO, Tyron McGurgan.
