Helping hands, healing hands


Rising up on Victoria Street, Darlinghurst, is the joint venture between St Vincent's Hospital, and The Garvan Institute for Medical Research. It is to be called the Kinghorn Cancer Centre and is due to open in 2012. All up, the centre is expected to cost upwards of $100 million, with $70 million coming from the Federal Government, and another $25 million coming from John Kinghorn who made a cool $650 million on the stock exchange when he listed RAMS Home Loans in 2007.


This mural was donated by the pupils of Darlinghurst Primary School, just around the corner, and is entitled 'Helping hands, healing hands'.

Always a good idea to involve children. Love the last photo that includes a child.

I can't even imagine that amount of money, but I'm very happy that he put a good part of it to something so worthwhile.
