Registrations are now open for The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation Annual Charity Golf Day! This year marks 28 years since The Prince Charles Hospital hosted the very first annual charity golf day, and since then it has helped to raise crucial funds to power thousands of hours of life-saving medical research – and all with a round of golf.
Join us on Friday the 14th of October 2016 at Virginia Golf Club for a round of golf (4-ball Ambrose), a BBQ lunch, buffet dinner and plenty of competitions and prizes throughout the day. Individual player registrations start at $65 a head, so to secure your spot please contact our team on 3139 4636 or via email@example.com.

On the 12th of August, we were proud to support the official Guinness World Record attempt for the largest practical science lesson. More than 3000 students from dozens of different schools around Queensland came together at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre for a special kind of school day; a world record attempt.
Students from primary through to high school got involved in a range of science activities, ranging from presentations on drones and magnets, to a special lesson by our very own Professor John Fraser. Assisted by young researchers Andrew Stephens and Eric Wu, Professor Fraser explained to the students how the heart works and changes speed throughout the day, when we do things like run around or even just stand up. He then demonstrated some of the incredible technology utilised at TPCH to help save hearts and lungs; much to the amazement of the captive audience.
Organised as part of National Science Week, Queensland Department of Science was able to set the official Guinness World Record for the largest practical science lesson.
Congratulations to everyone involved the incredible effort and organisation that went into planning the day!
