St Vincent's staff raise money for much needed transport

Who's chopping onions? Because it’s enough to bring a tear to your eye. 

St Vincent’s staff cooked snags, sliced onions and laid out the bread for St Vincent’s Care Carseldine on the weekend.

Carseldine resident Tess Kruger gives her take on lockdowns, positivity and discovering new interests

Despite the recent price increase for the classic sausage sizzle, people were not deterred!  St Vincent’s Carseldine is a BIG site. Because of this, staff applied to run the Carseldine Bunnings sausage sizzle for the day with funds raised going towards a new golf buggy to help aged care and retirement living residents (and their families) get around the site. 

Even better? Staff gave up their own time to support residents – you love to see it! 

Facility managers, clinical managers, marketers and more joined in for the day to make it al happen. All in all over $1500 was raised getting us one step closer to getting that buggy which will make the lives of residents and families at site just a little bit easier.

Despite the success, we did hear that some staff have been (un)officially banned from onion cutting duty for life (your guess is as good as mine). 

Got a story we should know about?
