About the coordinators

Julie Angeloni began supporting the Royal Children's Hospital 25 years ago after she lost her son to a congenital heart defect. Julie was given a gift of a pair of booties and was so moved by the gesture, she began doing the same thing. Julie says "you can't underestimate the strength you get when you receive care from a stranger."

Monica Hemphill is an avid crafter and Coordinates our Crafty Cats MakerSpace.  Monica volunteers her time to facilitate on the day activities for these events and has organised fundraisers in the past for for Insight Education an organisation supporting vision impaired kids.
