The story so far
Founded in 1922, St Kilda Auxiliary is one of the original RCH Auxiliaries and has been supporting the hospital for over 95 years. When the Auxiliary was originally formed, members of St Kilda were involved in supporting the hospital in a myriad of ways which included anything from making the doctors’ gowns, and sheets and pillowcases for the patients, to running annual stalls and working in the hospital canteen.
Over the years our group has reduced to only four working members, however our passion for supporting sick kids still lives strong, and our fundraising progresses well with the support of the RCH Foundation Auxiliary Team and members of other Auxiliaries.
We warmly welcome new members – please contact Dot to learn more about how you can be involved in supporting children at the RCH.
What we are working on
The St Kilda Auxiliary’s fundraising efforts of yesteryear included anything from making the doctors’ gowns, and sheets and pillowcases for the patients, to running annual stalls and working in the hospital canteen. Today the group’s fundraising activities include stalls and raffles, Paddy’s Market, and working regularly in the Gift Shop. The auxiliary’s local council, community organisations and members provide it with regular support. Funds raised go towards funding items on the hospital’s wish list.
