The Ross Hutchison Foundation supports and runs many charities where Rossco is the go-to man for many groups and organisations. Below are a few of the many projects that are supported all year round.
Rossco tirelessly puts his time, money and energy into helping others and is only backed up by a small team of volunteers. Rossco states, " We rely heavily on the generosity of the local community through donations with the support of charity events".
Contact us if you need support or would love to give some support to a charity that is close to your heart.
Together we will make a big difference to the lives of others.
NODDY THE CARER CAR
Noddy, the Carer Car, is a vital project that helps people with less abled to get to and from important appointments that they would not usually be able to attend. It also adds freedom and relief to people that would otherwise not be able to get around.
This project is solely funded by the foundation and is so popular that we are currently in the process of raising funds to support a second vehicle. If you can help us, please contact us to find out more.
RELAY FOR LIFE
Rossco is always a Gold Sponsor and long time relayer for the Penrith Relay For Life event every year. This great event is a 24hr fun run that always brings out
the best in everyone.
"Relay is a chance for the Penrith community to recognise and celebrate local cancer survivors, patients and their carers, to honour and remember loved ones lost to cancer and to raise money to help save more lives" - Relay For Life Website.
NEPEAN HOSPITAL PALLATIVE CARE
After witnessing a carer having to sleep on the floor of
a hospital while her mother was passing away, wired
up to machines, Rossco was inspired to support the purchase of Nikki Infusion Pumps.
These are necessary to support terminally ill patients while in the comfort of their own home, surrounded
by loved ones.
WINTER WARMER APPEAL
Every winter we collect warm clothes, blankets and
non perishable goods at our drop off point, the Nepean Centre Shopping Village in Penrith. These go directly to those in need.
Please donate any winter clothes, blankets, pillows, shoes, socks, hats, gloves and non perishable goods
to a much needed and worthy cause.
FREEDOM ACROSS AUSTRALIA
This started from a man confined to a wheelchair that was told he couldn't travel anywhere. Since then he has setup a bus dedicated for people in wheelchairs, that travels around Australia. He also now runs a National Road Tour for people with disabilities.
POVERTY AID FOR CAMBODIA
This cause supports an organisation that creates schools and homes in rural villages in Cambodia.
Our current project is to teach English lessons to the kids via short wave radio.
