Redcliffe Hospital Auxiliary Gift Shop

The Redcliffe Hospital Auxiliary Inc. gift shop is the primary source of fundraising for our not-for-profit group and relies totally on community donations of mainly hand crafted and other new donated goods.

For example: Toys, Tea towels, tablecloths, and plants.

The funds raised from the sale of the items has gone towards making the hospital a better place for patients, visitors and staff. In addition to the Gift shop we also have four Charity Stalls at the Local Shopping Centre’s annually.

Redcliffe Hospital Chapel

About the Redcliffe Hospital Chapel

In 1982 the Auxiliary commenced fund raising to build a Chapel in the grounds of Redcliffe Hospital.

Donations were provided by Auxiliary members and the local community.  As part of the donation process you were able to nominate what you would like your donation to fund.

The Auxiliary also sought interest free loans from Auxiliary members and the local community totalling $8000.  All these loans were repaid by July 1985 by the Auxiliary.

Work commenced on the building of the Chapel, and it was officially opened and dedicated on the 2nd of February 1986.

The Chapel fund was discontinued in September 1986 as enough funds had been raised by the Auxiliary to pay for the construction and outfitting of the chapel.

The Chapel is utilised by patients, clients, family members and staff daily, as a place to reflect and prayer for loved ones.  It has also been utilised over the years for memorials and marriages.

Two members of the Auxiliary Maisie Bourke and Cath Hannard were given life membership for the service that they performed in relation to the building of the Hospital Chapel.

The total cost of the Chapel was $60,659.64.
