Inglis Support Liverpool Hospital

Media Release - Thursday April 22

A 26kg chocolate Easter egg has gone under the hammer and raised $30,000 for Liverpool Hospital’s Paediatric Unit.

The giant egg was auctioned off by Australia’s leading thoroughbred auctioneer, Inglis, at an event promoting the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale in April, with donor Geoff Grimish OAM making the winning bid and also donating the giant Lindt Chocolate egg to the hospital.

South Western Sydney Local Health District Chief Executive Amanda Larkin was proud to welcome Inglis’ Deputy Chairman Arthur Inglis and Managing Director Mark Webster and Mr Grimish to the District and accept the generous donations.

“On behalf of all of our staff and their families in our care, we thank you for your generous donation and for supporting Liverpool Hospital’s Paediatric Unit,’’ Ms Larkin said.

“Your kind donation will make a significant contribution to children in south western Sydney.’’

The donation will be used to purchase medical equipment to monitor and resuscitate sick children in the Paediatric Unit.

Arthur Inglis said the company was delighted to have the opportunity to support Liverpool Hospital’s Paediatric Unit.

“We are keen to support the wonderful work of the doctors and nurses at Liverpool Hospital and we wanted to give back and contribute to the community in south western Sydney,’’ he said.

“It’s our way of thanking Liverpool Hospital for its wonderful work.’’
