Congratulations on completing your challenge and thank you again for your magnanimous support of The Alfred this Dry July.
Year after year, we continue to be truly grateful for the amazing contribution the community has bestowed upon the hospital, and we would particularly like to thank each and every one of you for the specific role that you have played in helping ease the stresses and strains on those affected by cancer.
The Alfred looks after many thousands of people living with cancer every year, so we see first-hand the difficult fight that patients and their families face on a daily basis.
We also see the remarkable difference that small changes can make to a patients’ stay, particularly as they endure such a challenging time. And your Dry July efforts have helped make that battle a little easier for some, and for that we are so grateful.
Thanks to the support of Dry July and those of you who have participated, The Alfred has been able to make some really positive changes to improve a number of areas where our patients spend a great deal of time, including a tranquil garden for patients to relax in between treatments and a new kitchen for inpatients and their loved ones to be able to enjoy the simple pleasure of making themselves a cup of tea.
Our gratitude is also extended to everyone who sponsored a Dry July Supporter this year; your remarkable generosity should not go unremarked. On behalf of the staff and patients at The Alfred, thank you!
