Queensland company works wonders for kids with burns

Innotech donates $5000 to Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation

Queensland company, Innotech Guardian Safety Systems, recently donated $5000 to the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation to aid children with burns.

The money was received after Innotech won an award in the 2008 Premier of Queensland Smart Awards, in the category of Small-to-Medium Manufacturing and Mining Award.

Innotech Directors, Michael and Ben Miranda announced their intention to donate half the prize money at the awards ceremony.

“We developed the Guardian Breathing Apparatus Accessory, and recently won the coveted Queensland Smart award.”

This apparatus enables firefighters to communicate with each other more safely and efficiently.

“With our product being used by all firefighters in Queensland we sought to donate to a cause close to firefighters.”

“The Queensland Fire and Rescue Service has been supporting the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation for many years and once we visited the burns ward we were convinced this was where our funds should go.”

CEO of the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation, Karenlee Spillane said donations from local businesses are invaluable in the quest to work wonders for kids with burn injuries. As the largest paediatric burns centre in Australasia more than 600 children are admitted for specialist treatment every year.

“We are very thankful to Innotech and the Miranda family for their donation to ensure kids with burn injuries have every opportunity to regain good health,” Ms Spillane said.
