Rural family donate quilt in tribute of Wishlist experience

24th November, 2021

Last Christmas North Queenslanders Anne and Phillip stayed at Wishlist House as their daughter recovered from a medical scare that almost resulted in losing her life on three occasions.

When Anne arrived back in Mackay, she shared her experience with her friends in many of the groups she belongs to in Mackay.  The guilt group she is a member of donated fabric to allow her and friends to make a quilt – to thank Wishlist for providing the extras in the most traumatic time.

“We are just so appreciative we could stay in that beautiful house close to hospital with our grandchildren. It was a really rough few months for us all,” Anne said.

Phillip & Anne pass on the rug to Tara at the Wishlist office.

Anne dropped off the quilt last week making the six hour round trip with her husband. Not long ago, the quilt won first prize at the Mackay Show and Anne sold 150 raffle tickets – with the proceeds going to Wishlist Centre.

Wishlist have taken over the reins now selling raffle tickets at SCUH, starting at 3 for $5.
