The Women’s and Children’s Hospital Foundation is on a mission to ensure that South Australian children and their families have access to the very best medical care, facilities and support services at a time when they need it most. 

The Lott through SA Lotteries is passionate about helping the Women’s and Children’s Hospital Foundation achieve this mission and this year we’ve committed $50,000 to the Women’s and Children’s Hospital Foundation to support the vital work they do. 

The donation will help the Women’s and Children’s Hospital Foundation provide much-needed equipment, essential support services and fund life-saving research.

Women’s and Children’s Hospital Foundation Chief Executive Officer Jane Scotcher said the donation would help them support South Australian families. 

“It has been a very challenging year for everyone, especially for children in hospital and their families,” she said. 

“We are so pleased to help make their lives a little brighter and support the brilliant care of the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.

“We can only do what we do because of the generosity of individual donors and corporate partners like The Lott. 

“We are grateful to The Lott for helping making this mission a reality and are thankful for their continued support of the Foundation’s work with this generous new donation.”

The Lott by SA Lotteries State Retail Manager Louise Kraws was on hand to make the donation at the opening of the Home Equipment Centre.

“Like many South Australians, my family has received care from the wonderful team at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital, so it was such a pleasure to be able to make the donation today,” she said.

“I know from my own experience how important it is for families to stay together during treatment, which is why the vital work the Women’s and Children’s Hospital Foundation does is so important.

“The Lott has a proud history of giving back to the community, and we couldn’t think of a better way to do this than supporting an organisation like the Women’s and Children’s Hospital Foundation and the incredible work they do helping South Australian families.”
