NightOwl raises over $36,000 for the Children’s Hospital Foundation

NightOwls’ inaugural fundraising campaign has raised $36,826 for sick kids across their 80 stores nationwide.

The funds raised will go to helping kids like six-year-old Patrick Fleming, who suffers from multiple joint deformities. 

Since he was six months old, Patrick and his family have been travelling to Brisbane every three months to undergo torso plaster castings and regular surgical procedures. 

Temporarily relocating to Queensland in January 2021, Patrick’s family have come to rely on the Children’s Hospital Foundation for support while they’re away from home. 

Lyndsey Rice, CEO of the Children’s Hospital Foundation, said the funds raised by NightOwl would help the not-for-profit organisation continue to change the lives of sick children requiring hospitalisation. 

“Each breakthrough in research, investment into new equipment or day brightened by our patient and family support team – that is because of the support of our partners like NightOwl, who allow us to continue to help sick and injured kids get better.

“We are thrilled to receive this generous donation from the NightOwl community and know the funds will make a huge difference for sick kids like Patrick both today and into the future,” said Rice.

Glenys Tristram, National Marketing Manager at NightOwl Convenience, said that NightOwl are passionate about supporting the communities they’re part of. 

“As an organisation, we are extremely passionate about supporting and adding value to the communities we live in and serve.

“We are so thankful to each and every customer who donated across the last few months and allowed us to live up to this value – we look forward to continuing to build the legacy of OwlGood well into the future,” said Tristram.
