Would you attend a cocktail function and movie screening event if you knew it would help fund lifesaving equipment for newborns?
Well, here it is: A movie about Mornington gynecologist and obstetrician Dr Andrew Griffiths’ maiden Sydney to Hobart yacht race will be screened on August 15 at Mornington Cinema to raise funds for the new Special Care Nursery at The Bays Hospital (the night starts with a cocktail function
at The Rocks Mornington).
Fully n Pushing – A tale of the Hobart is an epic movie about an inexperienced crew taking on one of the most treacherous yacht races of all – the Sydney to Hobart. All funds raised at the event will purchase much-needed equipment for the new Special Care Nursery. The event is supported by the Mornington Yacht Club, Harcourts Mornington, The Rocks Mornington and Mornington Cinemas.
The Bays Hospital has provided a maternity service for almost 80 years and around 500 babies are currently born there each year. It is considered one of the finest in the country and with a fast-growing regional population, it is expanding its midwifery services to ensure more local babies get off to a great start in life. Due for completion late 2016, the new Maternity Unit will feature 10 purpose-built maternity rooms, three birthing suites and a larger Special Care Nursery with extra cots and state-of-the art equipment. It will have individual pods where parents can feed and spend time with their baby in privacy. The Bays Hospital is not for profit and does not receive funding from state or federal governments. Community support is required to equip the new Maternity Unit with lifesaving equipment.
