Garrison Public House Teams Up With Kidz First

Garrison Public House at Sylvia Park recently held a charity BBQ and fundraising event with all proceeds going to Kidz First at Middlemore Hospital.

This year’s Waitangi Day BBQ was a great success, raising over $1,000 from regulars relaxing and enjoying the BBQ and live music outside in the courtyard.

The Warehouse, Sylvia Park, assisted by donating a BBQ for the day that was then auctioned off on Facebook the following week. Garrison Public House also benefited from the generosity of Pak ‘n Save, Sylvia Park and TLC Marketing who provided t-shirts for the day.

Dave Hickey, Director of Garrison Public House is pleased to be involved with such a great organization. “Kidz First is an organization that everyone hopes they won’t need to use, but unfortunately families do need them from time to time. With many families enjoying Garrison Public House we feel it’s a great charity to get behind.”

The money raised is being put towards the SimNewB which will cost the hospital $31,000. It is a lifelike simulated newborn manikin that comes with its own sophisticated computer programme. Ankita Luthra, Community Relations & Fundraising Officer for Kidz First says that the high fidelity manikin allows teams to practise procedures in a situation where it is safe for them as health care providers and for the ‘patient’ they are working on.

“We are grateful for the generous offer from Garrison Public House to raise funds for Kidz First. The SimNewB will help the staff stay up to date with training and new procedures that will help save a childs life” says Luthra.
