A great way to show someone you appreciate what they do is by shouting them a coffee. It’s a simple action that goes a long way. A kind gesture between friends.
A wonderful friend of Northern Health Foundation is the Riverlee Foundation, a relationship that has spanned many years. Over the years, Riverlee have funded important medical equipment for Northern Health, and most recently, a three-year PhD scholarship.
The Riverlee Foundation, and Northern Health Foundation, Board member Tricia Lee, paid a special visit to Northern Hospital to shout 1000 coffees for frontline medical staff. It just so happened that Katherine See, Head of Respiratory Medicine, was on hand to accept the very first coffee being donated by Riverlee.
The Lee family are passionate about giving back to the community and always willing to support a good cause. “We are very grateful for the hard work of all healthcare workers in Victoria. They are working so hard to keep us safe. We wanted to do something to show our appreciation. When we came across this campaign, we thought it was the perfect way to connect directly with the staff at Northern Health and to show we care,” says Tricia.
Riverlee is a Melbourne based, privately owned property group specialising in development and asset ownership across the commercial, residential, and retail and hotel sectors. Established in 1993 by Clement Lee, Riverlee is renowned for delivering leading urban design outcomes that foster a sense of place and belonging. Through the Riverlee Foundation, the company contributes at a grassroots level to the building of healthier communities and improved social outcomes.
This donation of $5000 will purchase approximately 1000 coffees for staff across all Northern Health campuses. Nurse Unit Manager, Rhiannon Cooper, is extremely grateful for the recognition saying, “being in full PPE for up to 12 hours a day is extremely exhausting. However, it’s nice to see the community recognises all our hard work and effort by getting behind the shout a coffee campaign and supporting all health care worker across the northern health campuses.”
We thank Riverlee Foundation for their continued support of Northern Health, its staff and community.
