Leaving a Legacy

An In Memoriam donation is a special way to cherish the memory of a family member, friend or colleague. Every In
Memoriam donation of R5000 or more is acknowledged with a plaque in our beautiful Garden of Remembrance at the Hospital.

The late Joan Wrench left a generous legacy gift in her Will to the Children’s Hospital Trust to be used to help sick children at the Red Cross Children’s Hospital. When young William Smith lost both his arms in a burns accident, Joan paid for his schooling and boarding for some years. William learnt to paint as part of his recovery therapy at the
Red Cross Children’s Hospital and has his own website where he sells his work. Through Joan’s legacy gift to the Children’s Hospital Trust a new Burns Dressing Room and special equipment for the new ICU will help other burns patients like William to regain their childhood.
