A public appeal was launched to raise money for the new hospital building, supported by the auxiliaries, Uncle Bobs’ Club, hospital staff and the general public. The target was £400,000, but the target was surpassed and the actual amount raised was £500,000 – which at that time was by far the largest amount ever contributed in a single appeal to a single charity in Australia.
