The Jimmy Jurd Fund was established to continue the legacy of Jimmy Jurd who lost his brave battle to a high-grade Glioma brain tumour at the tender age of 22 months. The Central Coast rallied together to raise money to fly Jimmy overseas for treatment, which was unavailable in Australia. This fund has been set up to assist families in similar situations to Jimmy and his family, helping them financially with medical costs.
Peggy’s Promise is a not-for-profit charitable organisation based on the Central Coast, assisting pets, homeless animals and their owners in need. They also help re-home abandoned and unloved animals. They also rescue animals on death row, and nurse animal back to care by covering the medical bill. These donations directly support the treatment and care of these animals.
For all you animal lovers out there this is a great charity.

They buy essential and often life-saving medical equipment in paediatric wards, neonatal units, maternity and emergency departments in over 250 hospitals Australia-wide. Hospitals and Health Services staff are able to make actual and immediate differences to children in life changing situations.
