How you can shout Tweed’s hospital heroes a cuppa

YOUR loose change could shout our hospital heroes a well-deserved cuppa.

The call has gone out to join the charity Our Kids to shout a hot beverage for frontline workers at both The Tweed Hospital and Lismore Base Hospital.

Fundraising co-ordinator Rebekka Battista said during this extraordinary time the hospitals' essential staff had been ever diligent to ensure the community was safe and well.

"This campaign allows the community to join with us in a small way to say a huge thank you during these times," she said.

"Whether you give $4 to shout one hospital hero a cuppa, or $40 to shout 10 hospital heroes a cuppa … it all counts and is a way together we can say thank you."

Our Kids has arranged with WHSmith Fresh+, the cafe operators inside the hospitals, for everyone on shift on May 13 to receive a free hot beverage to say thank you.
