Central Highlands Rural Health’s Deputy CEO, Phil Catterson invited the Daylesford community rally behind this fundraiser.
“The Daylesford community have dug deep and donated each time their hospital has needed major upgrades, and we’re asking them to rally again,” Phil said.
“We are incredibly grateful to the Maddicks family and their estate executor, Tim Byrne, for their ongoing commitment to the future of rural health care.”
The Maddicks family estate has been supporting the Daylesford Hospital since 1999 thanks to executor Tim Byrne, who is sponsoring the event in their honour, bringing the total giving to an incredible $278,000.
“The Daylesford hospital meant so much to generations of the Maddicks family,” Tim said.
“Harry and Peggy wanted to continue giving to the community after their passing. They knew how important it is to support country hospitals so locals can get the care they need close to home.”
Daylesford Health has services that support people who need urgent care, hospital care, residential aged care, in-home care and community health services.
