Werribee District Football Club is holding the 2nd annual Mercy Cup on Aug 10, 2019. This year they will play host to Point Cook FC in a battle for Mercy Cup bragging rights and the much sought after four points.
Both clubs are getting behind this local cause to raise funds for the new Paediatric ward opening in August at Werribee Mercy Hospital. The new ward that will mean our children, along with their parents, can access vital care locally in times of medical crisis.
Player ambassadors Judah Dundon & Ryan Butler will rally support for their respective clubs in an all out effort to raise $10,000 for the new Paediatric ward.
Get behind the boys and their clubs by making a donation online today.

The Werribee Hospital Foundation is actively working with the Wyndham community to help raise funds for the new Paediatric ward due to open in August 2019.
Already the Foundation has donated $40,000 toward the setup of the close observation room. This room is for the acutely unwell children who require close observation and interventions such as continuous monitoring, oxygen therapy and high flow nasal prong oxygen.
We can do more!
With further donations we can help fund medical equipment, toys and comfort items for the kids during their stay.
We’re committed to help decorate the ward and to make it a place suitable for children, dampening the ‘clinical impact’ that often frightens children during hospital stays. This is all part of helping kids to get well sooner.
The Victorian Government is providing $85 million to extend Werribee Mercy Hospital, giving families in Wyndham access to more beds and extended surgical services. In addition, the funds allow for the establishment of critical care services. The project, known as Stage 1C expansion, will commence in early 2017 and include:
- 56 new inpatient beds
- 6additional operating theatres
- a central sterile supply department
- an 8 bed critical care unit (CCU)
Werribee Hospital Foundation, in support of Mercy Health, has committed to government that we would lead a community appeal to raise an additional $2 million to enhance furnishings and equipment for the CCU and fund the Wellness Garden as a significant part of the overall Stage 1C expansion.
All money raised through this appeal will be used solely to benefit patients at Werribee Mercy Hospital. Donations to the appeal are tax deductible and can be made in a number of ways.
- A on off donation
- A regular donation made periodically over a number of years
- A bequest
Or you may like to fundraise and encourage your friends and family to support you.
The Critical Care Unit appeal is jointly supported and operated by the Werribee Hospital Foundation and the Mercy Health Foundation.
