Media group's nurse fund donation welcomed by hospital

Lord Glenarthur, Chairman of King Edward VII’s Hospital, has welcomed news that Southern Cross Media Group are set to make a sizeable donation to the family of nurse Jacintha Saldanha.

Jacintha Saldanha was an outstanding nurse who was much loved by everyone at King Edward VII’s Hospital. After discussion with her family, we have established the Jacintha Saldanha Memorial Fund to benefit her husband and children at this difficult time. I am pleased to announce that many donations have already been made from around the world.

I have today read that Southern Cross Media Group have pledged to make a minimum donation of $500,000 Australian Dollars to an appropriate fund. We would certainly welcome such a donation to the Jacintha Saldanha Memorial Fund.
