Big W Has The Biggest Hearts Ever

Big W have donated half a million dollars to Cardiac Services at the Sydney Children's Hospital Randwick. On Saturday night at the Revesby Workers Club, Big W State Managers and supporters gathered to celebrate a record year of fundraising.

'Big W stores in NSW have been raising money for Cardiac Services at Sydney Children's Hospital since 1995, but the generosity of this donation has surpassed all other records' said Prof Les White, Executive Director of the hospital.

Joe Verzi, NSW Regional Manager said, 'We are very proud to have supported such a worthy cause. This great result is the combined efforts of our committed 14,000 associates'.

Hundreds of children are referred to the Sydney Children's Hospital Cardiac Services every year. Some babies are born with severe heart defects that require urgent surgical repair, others have complex illnesses affecting the heart, but they all benefit from the expert team and latest technology, which Big W's big hearts support.

The Big W Big Heart Campaign helps ensure that this service continues to develop and provide the best of care to children with heart problems across NSW.
