Newcastle Coal Infrastructure Group proudly presented a cheque for just over $100,000 to the John Hunter Children’s Hospital after they raised the funds at its biennial charity ball in September.

The gala event was organised by NCIG employees who donated their own time and worked together to bring this wonderful event to life. It is also a chance for everyone to celebrate their achievements and to give thanks to the many employees, businesses and community members who form the NCIG team.

NCIG's Gala Ball Committee have the tough job of selecting an outstanding community organisation. This year’s recipient received an overwhelming nod of approval from NCIG staff and contractors with most of them having dealt with the John Hunter Children’s Hospital at some point during their families journey.

NCIG CEO Aaron Johansen said the company was delighted to support such a worthy cause.

“Our people do a fabulous job in supporting the community, and this presentation to John Hunter Hospital is testament to the team who worked so hard in pulling the event together, and the wonderful services the hospital provides for thousands of children who are unfortunately admitted every year,” Aaron said.

But it was not just NCIG who dug deep for this event, with contractors and vendors all showing their support through sponsoring the event as well, with many also making large contributions.

John Hunter Hospital’s Manager Communication, Fundraising and Volunteering, Lucas Coleman said they were overwhelmed by the support from NCIG.

'The funds raised from the Newcastle Coal Infrastructure Group Ball will benefit the thousands of children and young people who are admitted to the Children's Hospital each year.

“These funds will go toward the refurbishment of a four-bed patient room in the J1 Adolescent Ward, a room that has not been refurbished since the hospital opened in 1991. Once complete, the children and young people admitted to the room will be welcomed into a bright, colourful and vibrant space, which will enhance their healthcare experience,” said Mr Coleman.
