Lighting the way for little miracles

Lighting the way for little miracles

Lighting-the-way-feature.jpgAcross Brisbane throughout the festive season, wonderful supporters are bring a little extra sparkle to their community with stunning Christmas light displays in support of Mater Little Miracles.

When the crowds come rolling in to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year, Kenmore residents Walter and Beverley Wood collect donations to Mater Little Miracles from their community.

Since 1998 they’ve raised nearly $78,000 to help the more than 2000 seriously ill and premature babies cared for at Mater Mothers’ Hospitals each year.

Dr Walter Wood explained that supporting programs at Mater was a cause dear to his heart, with Mater having played a significant role in his early career.

“We chose Mater Little Miracles as our beneficiary, because all those years ago when I was a medical student, I spent two years as an intern at Mater,” Dr Wood said.

“I loved the atmosphere at Mater—it’s a feeling that I’ll never forget. It has really been my alma mater all of these years, and I really wanted to be able to support some of Mater’s current work.”

Walter and Beverley’s magnificent display at 10 Warunda Street, Kenmore, is one of a number of displays that will support Mater Little Miracles this year.

To join in the festive spirit and show your support for Queensland’s tiniest patients and their families, we invite you to visit the displays listed below.
