Newcastle – Finding a cure for homesickness

In 2018, Curing Homesickness was established by Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation to raise funds for children’s hospitals and paediatric services across Australia.

The Curing Homesickness initiative believes kids don’t belong in hospital, they belong at home. Money raised helps get kids home from hospital sooner by providing crucial funding for innovative research, the latest equipment or amazing health professionals that provide care for sick kids.

As part of this initiative, John Hunter Children’s Hospital has partnered with 31 local Coles stores to raise funds for the children’s hospital by selling Mum’s Pasta and Pizza Sauce.

These delicious products have been created by Coles and will help make a stay in hospital for sick kids that little bit easier. Fifty cents from the sale of every jar sold will be donated directly back to John Hunter Children’s Hospital.

You can buy your sauce and help kids at John Hunter Children’s Hospital at the following Coles stores: Belmont, Bonnells Bay, Cessnock, Charlestown, Edgeworth, Fletcher, Glendale, Green Hills, Huntlee, Jewelstown, Kotara, Kurri Kurri, Lake Macquarie, Marketown, Mayfield, Medowie, Morisset, Muswellbrook, Newcastle, The Junction, Rutherford, Salamander Bay, Scone, Singleton, Swansea, Tanilba Bay, Tea Gardens, Thornton, Toronto, Wallsend, Waratah and Warners Bay.
