Wednesday, 3 December 2008

On 3 December 2008 Holy Cross Laundry, with the support of the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs, celebrated International Day of People with Disability by presenting recognition awards. Mater Health Services was recognised at the ceremony and received a Community Partners Award.

International Day of People with Disability was established by the United Nations to give recognition to the contribution that people with a disability make to our community. At the event Mr Bob Campbell, General Manager of Holy Cross Laundry said that in the 2007/2008 financial year, Holy Cross Laundry supplied 1 860 138 kilograms of linen to Mater Health Services, which comprises almost 50% of the linen being provided by Holy Cross Laundry.

Mater’s support enables Holy Cross Laundry to be an indirect international conduit for Mater’s holistic approach to the delivery of health care service to the community, to the person, their family and their social environment.
