The cancer centre and operating theatre at Royal North Shore Hospital (RNSH) received a generous donation.

The donation consisted of colourful caps, bags, and ear savers as part of Mental Health Awareness month.

The care package of handmade items was donated to the hospital by Buddhist charity Tzu Chi Foundation in hopes of lifting the spirits of hospital staff.

Clinical nurse consultant, Rebecca Fox, says hospital staff have been working extremely hard during the COVID pandemic and the donation was greatly appreciated.

“When the beautiful and colourful caps were donated to RNSH’s operating theatre during very busy COVID times, there was much excitement,” she said.

“The nurses were thrilled to have been gifted new cloth theatre caps – thank you so much to Tzu Chi Foundation.”

Cansupport Coordinator Tamara Doria said the donation was much appreciated by patients and staff. 

“The colourful caps make such an impact on our patients’ wellbeing, helping them through what is normally such a difficult time but especially over these past 18 months,” she said.
