Golden Casket has used unclaimed prize money to donate critical equipment for sick and premature babies at the Gold Coast University Hospital.
A $6,000 KanMed BabyBed, which is designed to reduce noise and distractions, has been gifted to the hospital to help with the care of sick infants.
The Gold Coast University Hospital donation is part of a $100,000 donation the Lott has made to the Children’s Hospital Foundation’s Regional Hospitals Wishlist, which is purely funded from unclaimed prize money.

Gold Coast University Hospital Neonatal Nurse Educator, Newborn Care Unit Liz Chappell said the donation would allow for enhanced care of their smallest patients.
“The KanMed BabyBed is specially designed for the sick and preterm newborn babies admitted to hospital,” she said.
“Its ergonomic design supports a baby in a comfortable pressure relieving mattress and allows parents and medical staff to easily access baby and medical aides.
“The KanMed BabyBed is ideal for our youngest patients at Gold Coast University Hospital who require longer-term care that could be up to a few months before they are allowed home.”
Golden Casket General Manager Andrew Shepherd said the Lott was extremely proud to donate critical equipment to the Gold Coast University Hospital.
“We have a long history of supporting health initiatives across the country and we are proud to continue that tradition through our donation to the Children’s Hospital Foundation’s Regional Hospitals Wishlist,” he said.
