Canterbury Linen Services

Canterbury Linen Services play a huge role in the day-to-day running of our Christchurch House, making the lives of families we support a little bit easier – one sheet at a time.

Canterbury Linen Services have been delivering freshly dry-cleaned sheets, pillowcases, and towels as well as providing event support for over five years – completely free of charge.

This more than $22,000 annual in-kind donation ensures our 26-room Christchurch House operates smoothly we can keep up with the demand of families using the facilities.

It also means families do not have to worry about the stress of keeping up with household laundry so they can focus on what matters most – their child’s medical treatment.

Our Housekeeper Kathy Oakes says the Canterbury Linen team, who deliver 3 times a week, are ‘just amazing’.

“If we need any extra linen they are always happy to help – I don’t know what we would do without them.”

Canterbury Linen Services Sales / Service Manager Clive Hackett says helping the House is rewarding for the team.

“It makes us feel proud knowing that we are contributing to the House’s great effort.

“We are owned by the Christchurch District Health Board, and many of the families of the children who use the hospital are from out of town, so working with the House helps with the whole process.”

Clive’s message to businesses wanting to support Ronald McDonald House South Island?

“Go for it, it is a great cause with lovely people working there – you won’t regret it.”
