No child belongs in hospital. It’s a goal the Bandaged Bear Appeal has been working towards achieving for the past 30 years.

Since 1989, the annual Bandaged Bear Appeal has fostered generations of giving from the community to support lifetimes of care for millions of patients and families at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

These vital funds have helped to significantly advance medical equipment, install world-class facilities and further life-changing research, which over time, has resulted in less invasive procedures and the ability to get children back home to their normal lives sooner.

The Bandaged Bear Appeal has helped to change millions of little lives at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. This March, you can help change a life too by supporting the Bandaged Bear Appeal.

Though the month, the Appeal is aiming to raise $1 million for sick kids but they need your help too.
