For the past 7 Christmas’, Toronto Workers Club, with the support of its board, management, staff, members, guests and Anytime Fitness Toronto, have placed toys, games and leisure activities under our Giving Tree.
Initiated in 2012 by the Toronto Workers Club office administration staff, this spirit and gift of giving continues to put smiles on children’s faces during the Christmas period.
Each year since the giving tree has been placed prominently in the Club with all donations and gifts being given directly to the John Hunter Children’s Hospital.
The John Hunter Children’s Hospital is a specialised tertiary referral pediatric hospital providing complex medical, surgical, major trauma and neonatal care services for northern NSW. The Children’s Hospital in Newcastle is one of three hospitals in NSW and over the course of a 12 month period will see almost 25,000 children and young people with 9,000 admitted to hospital and over 100,000 occasions of service through outpatient clinics.
This means some of these children and young people will spend Christmas in their beds or hospital wards with their families by their side. The Toronto Workers Club Giving Tree assists in giving children gifts on Christmas Day to make their day a little brighter and enjoyable.
This year we deliver a carload of Christmas bags filled with assorted toys, games and leisure activities to John Hunter Children’s hospital. We’d like to thank everyone who took the time to shop and donate to our giving tree. We can assure smiles, happiness, laughter, and enjoyment will stem from the receipt of those gifts.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a safe New Year!
The Team at Toronto Workers Club
