2023 at a glance
(July to December)
ECG testing - Samford Show
Team E reached new heights today at the Samford Show!
Big thanks to the Samford Show Society for welcoming us. So many lovely people came our way and we reached full capacity for our free Heart Rhythm Check (ECG) initiative.
Special thanks to Heart of Australia for the use of HEART 3 and to Fionn who went above and beyond all day.
Samford Golden Valley Pony Club
While we were at the Samford Show we had the pleasure of donating a defibrillator package to a wonderful local community group, the Samford Golden Valley Pony Club.
SGVPC is one of the largest clubs in Qld, catering for both young and seniors riders. It was lovely to meet Anita and Caitlin and present them with the defib package. They were super grateful and appreciated the importance of having received this potentially lifesaving piece of equipment for their club.
Once again we thank the Broomhead Family for their incredible contribution to Team E's defibrillator rollout.
Toowoomba Bears Rugby Club
Team E was sensationally represented in Toowoomba by a very special supporter, 9 year old Cameron!
On behalf of the Foundation, Cameron beautifully presented our latest defibrillator package donation to the President of his Rugby Club, the Toowoomba Bears. What a little superstar he was!
The Toowoomba Bears is a fantastic community based club catering for juniors, teenagers, girls, women's and senior teams.
Our heartfelt thanks again to the Broomhead Family for helping us provide another well placed defibrillator to a deserving community group and to Cam for his awesome effort supporting Team E!
Windsor State School - Pink Day
Our hearts were once again filled with gratitude and thanks to the very special community of Windsor State School. Over $5,500 was raised from their annual Pink Day for Team Eloise.
Special mention to Mary-Lou G, a wonderful past WSS parent for the fabulous treats so kindly provided for the staff morning tea and to the very generous businesses and families who donated items and prizes for our raffle :
Huskk Cafe, L'Occitane, Antica Home Lutwyche, Alba Roses Hendra & the WSS Snack Shack
Our enormous thanks to all involved for continuing to embrace the Foundation in such a magical way each year.
Palm Island - Defibrillator Donation
Team E's latest defib package donation has made it's way to the Palm Island Bwgcolman Healing Service.
Thank you to Heart of Australia for the introduction to this wonderful community group, we had the pleasure of meeting some of the Palm Island team at the recent Heart of Australia Gala Dinner.
Big thanks to Heart of Australia for delivering and presenting the defib package on our behalf and to the Broomhead Family for their continued generosity and support enabling us to provide more lifesaving defibrillator packages to regional areas.
