Christmas thank you for San staff
Staff who worked on Christmas Day were given a small token of 'thanks' from the SAH Administration team.
Traditionally staff are provided with a package of chips, nuts or chocolate although this year the Executive Team elected to support a farming family with the 'Buy From the Bush' campaign, purchasing homemade cookies for staff to enjoy.
This was the message given to all departments and wards that were open over Christmas:
Thankyou for being her on Christmas day. Every staff member here today has a significant part to play in caring for our patients, and we appreciate what you do.
As you are aware our farming communities have been doing it tough due to fires and drought. For this reason, we have chosen to buy this year's Christmas treat from the country.
Danelle and her family have been severely affected by the drought causing the family business to come to a complete standstill. Her home based hobby of baking is now the only means to generate enough income to sustain her family.
We are delighted to be able to make a difference to a rural family doing it tough this Chrismas.
Danelle included a card with her delivery: "THANKYOU for your Christmas cookie order. Your order has made a huge difference to the end of 2019 for our family. I hope these are very much enjoyed by all."
We hope you enjoy your Christmas cookie too!
Best wishes and a Happy Christmas
From SAH Admin.
