For 35 years Werribee’s own Master Wok has been serving up the very best Chinese cuisine to diners near and far. One of the first Chinese restaurants to establish in Werribee, Master Wok has become a local institution, attracting diners from all over Melbourne, including some very notable guests such as John Farnham.
Ringo Wong, local identity and co-owner of Master Wok, has been a long-term supporter of the local Werribee Mercy Hospital and was one early business donors to the hospital when it was built back in 1994.
More than three decades on and with the hospital undertaking an $85million expansion project that will see the addition of an 8 bed critical care unit, 56 new inpatient beds & 6 operating theatres, the team at Master Wok have again presented a significant donation to help provide life saving equipment for the Critical Care Unit.
Werribee resident, regular diner and Director of Werribee Hospital Foundation, Dr Callum Scott, recently presented a certificate of recognition during the 35-year banquet celebration among 150 local patrons.
Mr Wong said, ‘“locals have supported our business since we commenced 35 years ago and we want to give back and support the community. The local public hospital is very important to the people of Wyndham and many families will benefit from the expansion.”
The Werribee Hospital Foundation in conjunction with Mercy Health Foundation is raising money to fund vital equipment for the new Critical Care Unit. The Werribee Hospital Foundation recently pledged $400,000 toward the Critical Care Unit Appeal and continues to raise funds specifically for the local public hospital.
Supporters can contribute to the ongoing Critical Care Unit Appeal by going to www.wmhccuappeal.org.au and making an online donation.
