Heart to Heart Auxiliary

Raising funds for RCH Cardiology.

Area: Melbourne metro area

The story so far

Heart to Heart Auxiliary was established in 1989  by a group of volunteers at the RCH.Our group raises funds for the hospital by running stalls at the RCH, working at the Gift Shop, and holding Cuppa for Kids events. In the past we have also held shopping tours as well as catering and chocolate drives. Our stalls are supported by Auxiliary members as well as family and friends who donate their time to produce a range of products including knitted good, soft toys and baked goods.

We have two members who are recipients of the Madge Tate Award including Olive Cooper in 2005 and Phyl Brown in 2013.

What we are working on

Heart to Heart runs a variety of fundraising events each year to support the Cardiac Ward, including stalls, raffles, Cuppa For Kids events, shopping tours as well as contributing time to the RCH Gift Shop. Heart to Heart has numerous members who have been inducted into the honorary Living Treasures Auxiliary for their exceptional contributions to raising funds for the RCH.
