Giving back to the Northern community

Local support is crucial to the success of the Northern Health Foundation. Local businesses of all sizes can make a difference to the health of our Northern community by partnering with the Foundation.

The Good Guys in Thomastown have been generous supporters of Northern Health for five years, and here Proprietor Ted Chwasta explains why they believe giving back to the local community is so important.

‘We support the Foundation because Northern Health is such a valuable part of the northern region and we recognise how important health care is to our community. It’s not just our customers who live in the northern suburbs but the majority of our staff do too, and the Northern Hospital plays a major role in their lives.

Giving back to our community is an important part of The Good Guys’ charter. A percentage from every docket we produce is donated to charity and we’ve been proud to support Northern Health since 2006.

We’ve had a really positive response from our staff and also from our customers too – everyone’s pleased to see this support staying within the local community.

I’d absolutely encourage other local businesses that derive income from the local community to show their support for Northern Health. If we all gave a little back to our local community it can make a big difference.’

Partnering with the Foundation brings many rewards and opportunities for companies and their staff, and provides crucial support for Northern Health’s work. To learn how your organisation can be involved, contact Ryan Brown: ph (03) 8405 2313 email:
