Yorke Peninsula – Friends of the Womens and Childrens Hospital

Yorke Peninsula

Bute & District

The Bute Auxiliary began in 1959 and although currently a small team of 9, members rally and hold regular Sausage Sizzles which contributes to the overall fundraising toward much needed Medical Equipment.

Bute Auxiliary warmly welcomes new members.



Kadina Auxiliary began in 1956 and currently has 43 members who contribute in different ways based on their time and capacity. The group meets four times a year, with two designated ‘biscuit meetings’. This intriguing name means that members bring home made biscuits which are weighed, bagged and sold in the town after the meeting. Despite producing up to 180 bags, auxiliary members have no difficulty in finding ‘homes’ for their biscuits!

Cooking skills are not a pre-requisite to joining the Auxiliary. Other fundraising activities include badge days, movie mornings at the local cinema, managing the mothers’ and children’s room at Field Days and helping out at local small social events. Kadina Auxiliary members enjoy knowing that their work supports the health of women and children in South Australia.


Maitland, Arthurton

The Maitland/Arthurton Auxiliary began in 1961 and currently has 23 members. The members facilitate excellent catering to the local community which contributes greatly to the overall fundraising toward much needed Medical Equipment.

The Auxiliary warmly welcomes new members.


Moonta & District

Moonta Auxiliary, which celebrated its 60th Anniversary in 2015, raises funds for the hospital through a variety of activities including raffles for Valentine’s Day, Mothers’ Day, Fathers’ Day, Easter and Christmas.

Auxiliary members cater for suppers and hold raffles at Country Music concerts and organise an annual morning tea. Most of the 18 members have had family requiring the services of the hospital, and the group warmly welcomes anyone interested in joining.



The Wallaroo Auxiliary was formed in 1981. There are 23 enthusiastic members who unite to facilitate Trading tables, Raffles and an annual Morning Tea.

Motivational Guest Speakers make for an enjoyable and interesting Morning Tea. These activities contribute to the overall fundraising toward much needed Medical Equipment.

Wallaroo Auxiliary warmly welcomes new members.


Warooka & District

The Warooka Auxiliary began in 1962 and has a team of 19 members. The members facilitate excellent annual fundraisers, the most recent being the very successful 'Jazz on the Lawn'.

The Warooka Auxiliary warmly welcomes new members.


Yorketown & District

Yorketown Auxiliary was formed on the 3 March 1957, and despite a short period of inactivity in the 70s continues to flourish with seven members. The Auxiliary meets several times a year, building up to the annual Craft Fair held in the Yorketown Town Hall in January, a significant community event and the major fundraiser.

Membership is a family tradition for some, with others happy to support the hospital whether or not their family members need its services. Yorketown Auxiliary warmly welcomes new members.
