Giving locally is a regular thing

Geoffrey Bartlett grew up visiting the Mornington Peninsula for holidays, camping on the Rye foreshore with his family. It was this nostalgia that led Geoffrey and his wife to find a place to live on the Peninsula 13 years ago. For nine of these years, Geoffrey has been a regular giver to Peninsula Health, donating monthly to help where it is needed most.

Visiting the Rosebud Emergency Department on a few occasions, and needing the hospital when he had pneumothorax, Geoffrey says, “it’s really good to know the local hospital is there.”

Becoming a donor was an easy decision for Geoffrey. “The local hospital is the most appropriate charity to support of all”, he adds. Geoffrey’s regular donation assists us to be able to rely on funds and plan ahead for where it’s needed most.

Geoff’s giving goes beyond supporting his local hospital. As President of Peninsula Country Music Club, committee member of Southern Peninsula Classic and Historic Car Club, and volunteer bus driver for Royal Freemasons Aged Care in Safety Beach, he is regularly giving his time to help his community.  If Geoff isn’t busy wearing his philanthropic hat, he and wife Helen can be found on the dance floor, attending line dancing classes at Dromana Senior Citizens’ hall.
