Childhood Cancer Support
In 2020 Hillbrook established a partnership with Childhood Cancer Support. On Talk Like a Pirate Day 2020 Hillbrook raised $1,500 and the school obtained $3,000 in donations from contractors working on the Campus Development Project. This money was spent on the beautification of recreational spaces at the Herston property where several families currently reside. A team of students, staff and parents paved, concreted, painted, mulched, built garden beds, laid compost, and installed irrigation and recycling sytems over a weekend in November.

Childhood Cancer Support is a not-for-profit organisation who, for 44 years, has been dedicated to providing families affected by childhood cancer with a place to live that looks and feels like home. Childhood Cancer Support is the oldest children’s cancer charity in Australia and was founded by a dedicated group of parents who realised there was an urgent need to provide a safe and family-focused environment for regional families whilst their child was receiving life-saving cancer treatment in Brisbane at the Queensland Children’s Hospital.
