Sydney Airport staff have donated $24,300 to St George Hospital for its new Emergency Department, with funds raised through a special charity ball supported by the airport community.

Sydney Airport’s Aerobilling Analyst, Linda Lavorato, and Senior Financial Accountant, Wayde Harnett, led the fundraising effort.

Sydney Airport contributed $15,000 to the cause, as St George Hospital has great synergies with the airport community and is a vital service providing first response to the airport precinct.

The event was also supported by other members of the airport community, including the new Rydges Sydney Airport Hotel which provided the venue, airlines, Sydney Airport retailers, small businesses in the local community, and staff who attended the event.

St George Hospital plans to use the funds to buy lifesaving equipment for its new Emergency Department.
