Gifts in Kind


Thousands of families across Hunter New England visit our facilities each year, almost 50,000 children and young people visit the John Hunter Children’s Hospital alone, and as you can imagine they are in constant need of little extra comforts to help pass the time and entertain our many patients.

During the course of the year we are in desperate need of the following items:

New Colour pencils and Textas
New Children's Books - for ages 0 to 12 years
New Children's DVD's - Rated G
New Children's Xbox games - Rated G
New Colouring Pads and Books
New Play Dough 
New Stickers

If you are able to assist us with any of the above items, please contact our Fundraising Department (02) 4921 4492.

Due to health regulations, we are unable to accept used toys, books or knitted goods.

John Hunter Children's Hospital is always in need of pro bono professional services. Donation of goods in kind such as graphic design, printing, raffle or auction prizes, catering and event production services are vital to our success.

Goods in Kind donations are eligible for a tax-deductible receipt.

If you or your company would like to assist by making a donation of goods or services in kind, please contact us on (02) 4921 4492.
