Plumpton Marketplace creates ‘BIG Change for Small Change’.
For one day only, on Saturday 18 August 2018, Plumpton Marketplace hosted a community event that aimed to give back to the local community and make a difference to the lives of children by supporting the important work at the Mount Druitt Hospital children’s ward.
All money raised will support the ongoing Children's Healing Garden project at Mount Druitt Hospital. Caring for over 3,500 children per year, the Paediatrics Ward Garden needs to be renovated to create a place of restoration and healing for patients, carers and visitors.
