The ongoing generosity of donors has this week seen to the furnishing and equipping of our Camperdown Residential Aged Care’s 23rd bedroom. This time, it’s the Friends and Relatives of Merindah (FROM) who’ve made the significant $9,200 donation to ensure the completion of one of the facility’s 36 bedrooms.

Being built alongside the Camperdown Hospital as we speak, the $39.6m Camperdown Residential Aged Care facility will replace the existing 48-year-old Merindah Lodge.

Our $562,000 appeal to help with the furnishing and equipping of the facility was launched on March 14. In just 15 weeks, we’ve received $337,560 in donations. Additional to the $119,600 yet to be raised to complete the furnishing and equipping of the remaining 13 bedrooms, other initiatives also need donor support including $4,850 to deck out the nail and hair salon. Fifty people are being invited to each donate $97 to achieve this. So far, 21 people have done so.

With June-30 looming, appeal manager Suzan Morey says now’s the time for anyone wanting to make a 2023-24 tax-deductible donation. This can be done by emailing Suzan at, personally visiting our Camperdown Hospital cashier, or donating online at
