25 Years of the RAH Research Fund Newsagency
Since opening in November 1990, all proceeds from the RAH Research Fund Newsagency have been directed to fund vital medical research at the hospital via the RAH Research Fund.
Offering 25 years of service to patients, families, staff and visitors, current manager, Cynthia Henderson, says the Newsagency has raised in excess of $2.1 million since it began and continues to be a hub of activity at the RAH.
“I’ve been here since it all started 25 years ago and I’ve been the Manager for the past six years – I love meeting and serving the lovely customers we have,” Cynthia said.
“Many are here for difficult and challenging reasons, but their stories are always interesting.”
“I’m so incredibly proud that we raise money for such a worthy cause and provide a necessary and much appreciated service to the hospital.”
The RAH Newsagency provides traditional services such as papers, magazines, gifts and stationary.
It also offers a range of other services such as SA Lotteries, Adelaide Metro recharging, some Australia Post services, Dry Cleaning, Movie Tickets, Gift Cards and TV Vouchers for public hospital patients.
The team is excited to move to the new Royal Adelaide Hospital and can’t wait to continue to deliver their services to staff, patients and their families and friends.
“We are very excited about a brand new shop and we are keen to continue to serve the people who work at and visit the RAH with the high level of customer service people have come to expect from our team.
“Finally, we’re looking forward to being able to continue to raise valuable funds for medical research and to promote this to our customers. Their purchase is appreciated and the profits will benefit the vital work being done in medical research.”
