The Children’s Hospital Foundation works wonders for sick kids by funding life-saving medical research, investing in vital new equipment, and providing some amazing entertainment, family support and care programs for sick kids. Our incredible volunteers are there to support little patients while they are in hospital, helping them to laugh and smile, get better and go home with their families.
Everything we do is made possible by the generosity of our partners and supporters. With your help, we will continue to fund research to achieve faster diagnoses, better treatments and ultimately cures for some of the most devastating childhood illnesses and injuries.
There’s a lot you can do to support a child with an injury, serious illness or life threatening disease. You can donate money to help save precious young lives. Donate your time to make a difference at our children’s hospital. Or raise funds for vital research and equipment, spread smiles and support families through difficult times.
You can make a difference and with your support, the wonders will never cease and the care will never stop.
Three-year-old Charlie, pictured with Brenton, Chris and Dom from Roma Street Fire Station, was among the cheering crowd who welcomed 44 Queensland firefighters, police and ambulance officers to the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital today, the final stop of their seven-day 750km bike ride.
Now in its 12th year, the Bike for Burns ride has raised almost $600,000 to help the Children's Hospital Foundation fund vital research into childhood burns injuries and scar management.
Please join us in thanking the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services - QFES riders for their incredible commitment to helping Queensland kids living with burns injuries!
This National Volunteer Week we salute David, one of our special volunteers who supports kids and their families entering Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital’s Emergency department. Using his self-proclaimed dad jokes and inner clown, David helps patients and their families smile under less than ideal circumstances.
“Emergency gives me an opportunity to work more closely with doctors, nurses and patients to provide an immediate impact through distraction and play in what can be a stressful and scary experience.
“Recently, I helped distract a three-year-old girl who supposedly didn’t like males (just to add to the challenge!) with copious amounts of bubbles, and a few silly faces. I managed to get her smiling and laughing, something her grateful mum hadn’t seen her do in several days,” he said.
Emergency department volunteers, like David, pictured here with four-year-old Arlo, play an important role in helping to ease the stress of what can be a high-pressure environment by providing a helping hand to parents or distracting and entertaining kids.
Over the past year, our dedicated team have supported more than 2,900 families through Emergency.
Just before his first birthday, Charlie was in the kitchen with his family when he pulled a deep fryer off the bench, sustaining burns to 36 percent of his body.
Charlie spent 39 days in hospital, where he underwent skin grafts, painful dressing changes, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, scar management, garment fitting and intense pain management.
Charlie is now back at home – a very happy toddler full of love and energy - but he still requires ongoing treatment to manage his scars at the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital burns clinic.
Forty-four Queensland firefighters, police and ambulance officers are currently riding more than 750km – from Southport to the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital – to raise money for kids like Charlie.
Over the past 12 years, Bike for Burns riders have raised almost $600,000 to help us fund vital medical equipment and research so kids with burns injuries can heal faster and can go home sooner with their families.
It's National Volunteer Week, and we want to say a big thank you to our wonderful Children's Hospital Foundation volunteers who make an invaluable contribution to the care we provide to our patients and families. We're glad to have you on the team!
If you see a volunteer this week, help us show them how much we appreciate them by saying 'Thank you' (or leave a message below!). 👏👍🖐️

It's National Volunteer Week! To mark the week, we'll be introducing you to some of the incredible Children’s Hospital Foundation volunteers who make a big difference to sick kids at Lady Cilento Children's Hospital and across community sites.
Meet Sue, one of our special Scholastic Book Bunker volunteers who has dedicated almost a decade of her life - and over one thousand hours of her time – introducing kids to the magic of books.
Every Friday, Sue makes the long journey from Toowoomba to Brisbane so that kids in hospital can sit and read their favourite story or have a book read to them at their bedside. As a qualified librarian of 34 years, she also spends her time cataloging the more than 10,000 books available as part of the service.
“I’ve been volunteering for the Book Bunker service since it was established in 2009. I was living in Brisbane at the time, but moved back to Toowoomba for my husband’s job. I have since retired, but I wanted to continue helping out, so now I drive down once a week.
“It’s nice to be able to keep in touch with my profession. I love children’s literature very much, so I really enjoy seeing the new releases that come in, as well as staying on top of what’s going on in the industry," she said.
Sue, alongside the dedicated team of Book Bunker volunteers, have loaned more than 10,900 books to sick kids and their siblings at Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital over the past year.
