Parkville Auxiliary

Raising funds for Occupational Therapy, Psychology and Music Therapy Departments

Area: Parkville

The story so far

Parkville Auxiliary was formed in 1946, and has been raising funds for The Royal Children’s Hospital for over 70 impressive years, with many members contributing more than 20 years dedicated hard work to the hospital. The Parkville Auxiliary raises funds to support the work of the Occupational Therapy, Psychology and Music Therapy Departments. Currently membership stands at twenty-three. New members are always welcome.

What we are working on

Parkville Auxiliary raises funds primarily through its work in and around the hospital. Members contribute regular hours in the RCH Auxiliaries Shop, Foundation Office and make good use of the Auxiliary PODS to run stalls selling home-baked goods and high-quality merchandise and raffles. Away from the hospital, recent fundraising events have included Art Raffle, Christmas in July, Cuppa for Kids, shopping mall sales and a flea market. Members are always keen to discover new ways to fundraise for the hospital.
