My speech in Parliament on Trudi Hay's fundraisers for Northern Hospital - 18 October 2018

I spoke in Parliament about Trudi and Steven Hay's annual fundraising efforts to raise money for the Northern Hospital.

10 years ago Trudi's friend was diagnosed with breast cancer, this experience motivated Trudi to contact the fundraising team at Northern Health and find a way to give back meaningfully to the community.


For 9 years running Trudi has hosted high teas to raise money, this year she has helped raise over $9000 to support breast cancer patients and the purchasing of a chemotherapy chair. Trudi's annual fundraisiers have raised over $50,000 to provide important chemotherapy equipment for Northern Health, and together with her husband Steven, $300,000 for the hospital's research centre.

I congratulate their ongoing efforts for contributing to the community of Calwell.
