Have you got the scooper power?
Each year The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation raise vital funds through the legendary EKKA Strawberry Sunday Stalls. With the help generous volunteers, we sell enough EKKA Strawberry Sundaes to power thousands of hours of medical research to tackle some of Australia’s most debilitating chronic illnesses - right here at The Prince Charles Hospital.
At last year's EKKA we had a goal to sell enough EKKA Strawberry Sundaes to support 4,000 hours of research - with an amazing effort from all of our volunteers we were able to raise 3,800 of research hours!
This year we are hoping, with your help, we will reach and surpass our 4,000 hour goal!
To do this we will need:
The EKKA is synonymous with Strawberry Sundaes, it’s a Queensland institution!
When you volunteer at the TPCH Foundation EKKA Strawberry Sundae Stall you will not only receive FREE ENTRY into the EKKA on the day of your volunteering AND a free Strawberry Sundae! You will be powering life-saving research at The Prince Charles Hospital – research that has helped to save the lives of people like Rebecca Craven – You can see Bec’s remarkable story here
