Bayfair Invests in the Spirit of Giving

So many of you are spending this season on it’s ultimate purpose: giving. One center that’s making a big difference is Bayfair Shopping Centre.

This year, the center put its charity appeals to work for sick teens, helping to raise funds for new equipment and furniture for the upcoming adolescent rooms at Tauranga Hospital and Whakatane Hospital.

“After visiting Tauranga Hospital and speaking with the fantastic staff working on the paediatric ward, it appeared to us that adolescent patients would really benefit from having additional equipment to use during their stay,” says Bayfair marketing manager Nina Rivett. “We would like to help enrich the experiences these young people have while they are in hospital, and it is a pleasure to be able to work with the Bay of Plenty DHB to make this happen.”

Part of the costs of gift wrapping and photos with Santa will go toward this great cause, fulfilling a wishlist compilled in part by the youngsters currently in care at the hospitals.

Tauranga Hospital paediatrician Dr Kendall Crossen says it has been well established that play is therapeutic for children when they are unwell, but teenagers seem to get lost in the picture. “The adolescent room will give young people a space of their own where they can express themselves and also have some fun.

“We are grateful to Bayfair for its support in helping to raise the money to purchase equipment for the new adolescent rooms. It will make a huge difference to the experience these young people have while they undergo inpatient care.”
