Mater Auxiliaries back in action

20210209-094404-002.jpgAfter almost a year’s break due to the pandemic, the beloved women from the Mater Hospital Brisbane Auxiliary are back in action!

Over the past 40 years, this dedicated group of women have contributed to Mater by raising much-needed funds through the baby shop in the foyer of Mater Mothers’ Hospital as well as through their legendary cake and craft stall and other successful fundraising activities.

In 2019, the three Mater Auxiliaries—Mater Brisbane Hospital Auxiliary, Mater Mothers’ Hospital Auxiliary and Mater Private Hospital Redland Auxiliary—were awarded Mater Foundation’s prestigious Betty McGrath Award, recognising the auxiliaries for their long-standing commitment and dedication to Mater since the 1970s.

Welcome back, and thank you, ladies!

For information on events or joining the Mater Auxiliary please contact Mater Foundation Queensland on 07 3163 8000.
