Radio lollipop

Why we have an association with Radio Lollipop?

Having worked alongside so many amazing volunteers for many years within this organisation at many levels, I can personally say I have seen firsthand the fantastic work and benefits brought to many children in hospital all around the world.

Apart from the main objective of providing care, comfort play and entertainment for children in hospital, a 2009 Study undertaken at Children's Hospital Orange County in USA found;
After the Radio Lollipop activity, children reported a significant decrease in overall anxiety with the greatest reduction coming in the area of worry.


Analyses of (FACES) scores revealed a significant reduction in perceived pain after the program.

Princess Margaret Hospital Perth, Western Australia;
Postgraduate research reported an 82% reduction in request for pain-killing drugs after Radio Lollipop involvement.

Mater Children's hospital Brisbane Qld, Australia;
In 1990 the Mater Children's Hospital reported saving over $400,000 in un-administered drugs after the first year of Radio Lollipop operation.

The Radio Lollipop service was founded in the UK in 1979 as a one-off project.

After more than thirty years as an entirely volunteer organisation, Radio Lollipop has grown to include over 10,000 volunteers operating 26 hospital radio stations in 5 countries and also operate satellite stations in a number of suburban/regional hospitals.

Since 1979 Radio Lollipop volunteers have directly helped nearly 5 million sick children in hospitals and reached over 13 million people worldwide.

We whole heartedly continue to support Radio Lollipop in any way we can and are extremely proud of our association.

Global Support Association Inc

Why we have an association with Global Support Association Inc?

Being introduced to John and Marilyn from "Global Support" some time ago and on hearing about all the great work overseas that they had already carried out, it was impossible for me to refuse joining in with some projects already on the go in Laos.

Coming on board to assist in the overseas project management of a much needed gravity fed water supply to an ethnic minority and disadvantaged children's school in northern Laos, I had the great pleasure in working alongside this amazing organisation and seeing firsthand the major benefits that their efforts bring to countries that have little or no assistance within.

Global Support Association Inc. is a not for profit organisation - Public Benevolent Institution - incorporated in Australia and led by Philanthropists.    It is a registered charity with the ACNC and has DGR (Deductible gift recipient status from The Australian Tax Office).  

It was commenced by a group of Senior Professional Citizens and Retirees (mostly members of international service clubs) who wanted to combine their efforts to leverage and provide support to the needy globally. This help is provided in a hands on way with importance on sustainability.

 Support comes in through the use of public donations and PAFS, advertising revenue, personal effort, sales of local handicrafts and hands on help in country and from Australia by members, associates, and volunteers.  

We are happy to assist in any way possible for  "Global Supports" continuing and extraordinary humanitarian endeavours.

Campaign for Samuel Inc.

Why we have an association with "Campaign for Samuel"?

In a chance meeting, we had the great fortune to be able to meet up, on a personal level with the Grandparents of Samuel Thorne. Where we found out all about the amount of assistance and attention that is needed to care for someone with the condition of Transverse Myelitis.

 

This individual plight for continuous funds needed to provide just a normality of life for an individual with this condition, spurred us on to find out more about this debilitating condition and the “Campaign for Samuel,” is one we wholeheartedly support.

 

We are happy to assist in any way possible to the “Campaign for Samuel,” for promoting all events held to raise much needed funds for Samuel.

Should you require any additional information on our association, please do not hesitate to contact us Dougie and Jules at:-

We also direct you to “Campaign for Samuel,” main website page for your interest, donations and further communications thereon, by the link below:-

We openly point out that all funds directed to this cause are non research related and purely for direct assistance to the ongoing costs of care and quality of life for Samuel.
