As part of the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal, 3AW’s Neil Mitchell has once again run Neil’s Wheel, this time raising $213,000.
With the money, the hospital was able to buy a desperately needed tissue processing machine, and when it arrived today, Paediatric Pathologist, Colleen D’Arcy, revealed the two parts of the machine have been given names.
The new machine replaces an 11-year old machine which was dubbed ‘Hamish and Andy’ and Dr D’Arcy says, “We’ve actually named this one ‘Neil’ and ‘Mitchell’. We’re replacing Hamish and Andy, they’re redundant!
“We’re very grateful. It’s essential and we really need it for the functioning of the hospital, and it will save lives.”
