Grant us a wish this Christmas


This Festive Season,  take a moment to think of the families staying with us who instead of celebrating the festive season at home with family and friends are facing the fear and uncertainty of their child’s illness. Our Wish Lists are a great place to start if you would like to donate something we really need.

Donate Goods


Our Christchurch House operates like any home except on a bigger scale. We try to keep our pantries stocked with the basics so families have one less thing to worry about when staying with us. If you would like to purchase some items for the House, we would love if you could help us restock our pantries and kitchens. Below is a list of the things we currently need: 


  • Cereal: nutrigrain, honey puffs, coco pops, muesli, fruit loops
  • Vegemite, Marmite, jam
  • Crackers
  • Tinned tuna
  • Instant Noodles
  • Popcorn
  • Snack packs of chips



Please note: For health and safety reasons second-hand toys and other household products cannot be accepted.

If you have any questions or would like to deliver your donated goods, please contact us.
