Royal Wolf and the Sydney Shipping community has continued its outstanding support of the Oncology Research Unit at Westmead Children’s Hospital through the Industry Shipping annual Golf Day. Last week representatives of the golf day committee were invited to the hospital for a tour of the magnificent facilities and during the visit present a cheque to the hospital which were the funds raised at the 2015 golf day. The cheque, for $33,500 takes the cumulative donation from the golf day to $565,000 in total funds raised.
Head of the Oncology Unit, Dr Geoff McCowage, said ‘the hospital continued to be amazed and grateful to the Sydney Shipping community for its support. This support has continued over 20 years and it is this type of support which we rely on to help continue our fight to overcome childhood cancer’. “Royal Wolf’s 7 years’ involvement, as one of the Major Sponsors, also some of our Hornsby staff kindly assists with the admin aspects for the day.”
