Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) Northern NSW helpers will now stand out in a crowd, thanks to Newcastle Aboriginal artist Saretta Fielding.
The proud Wonnarua woman has created the organisation’s new volunteer uniforms, to be donned by more than 400 people.
The artwork also shares the RMHC Northern NSW story in traditional symbolism and contemporary design.
CEO Ross Bingham said the exciting initiative, made possible by the support of Robson Civil Projects, was a terrific means to recognise the not-for-profit’s amazing volunteers.
“They truly are the heart of RMHC, helping to give families an oasis of comfort in a sea of chaos,” he explained.
“To us, they play such an important role.
“Each year about 700 families call Ronald McDonald House in Newcastle their ‘home away from home’ so they can stay near their child in hospital.
“It’s a similar story in our Family Rooms outside the J1 Children’s Ward and in the NICU, where our volunteers are the welcoming face for more than 17,000 people annually.
