2017

In 2017 the WANTZ Committee proudly supported Hummingbird House.

Hummingbird House, Queensland’s only children’s hospice, provides short stay breaks, family support, creative therapies and care for children with a life-limiting condition, and their families.

Hummingbird House includes:

• Eight guest-in-care bedrooms
• Five family accommodation suites
• A hydrotherapy pool
• A rooftop terrace
• A ‘care at the end of life’ suite
• An in-house kitchen and chef

Underpinned by the notion of creating a ‘warm embrace’ for children and their families, their multidisciplinary team will provide:

• Scheduled child and family short stay breaks
• Emergency short stay breaks
• Pain and symptom management
• Care at the end of life
• Psychosocial support programs for the whole family

Hummingbird House supports families by ensuring they have access to short stay breaks, family support, creative therapies and end of life care.

Hummingbird House is a place where kids can be kids, families can reconnect and precious memories can be created. It's a joint initiative of Wesley Mission Queensland and Hummingbird House Foundation.

This year the WANTZ Dinner in support of Hummingbird House was held on Friday, 8th September 2017 at Custom's House Long Room. The WANTZ Committee was delighted to be able to raise $180,000 on behalf of this worthy cause. A huge thank you to all our fabulous sponsors, donors, guests and friends, without whose generosity this would not have been possible.
