Playground plans underway!

Thank you for kickstarting a campaign to build a new playground and outdoor space for kids and their families at Flinders Medical Centre.

So many families will benefit from this space. Families just like the Turley family. 

It will be a place to go for a moment of distraction, fresh air and enjoyment... and the chance to briefly escape their hospital room.

Mum Hayley told us the most difficult thing about daughter Addison, 1, being regularly admitted to Flinders Medical Centre was the family being separated. 

“Often the hardest thing is having two other kids at home who need our support too,” Hayley says.

“They miss Addi so much and they want to come in to see for themselves that she is ok. 

“If there was a playground and outdoor space, they could come in and see her and we could maybe take Addi outside for some sunshine and fresh air and watch them play… she just loves being outdoors watching them play – for her that’s home… This would change a lot of families lives.”

We look forward to sharing the progress of this exciting project with you throughout the year.
