The winner of The Bright Alliance building “Name the Crane” competition has officially been named “Jane the Crane who came to take away the pain” by Frankie Richards, of Coogee Public School. Frankie chose the name, “because Jane is my very loved Auntie who has cancer and this would mean a lot.”
The winning entry was selected by a judging panel from the Prince of Wales Hospital Cancer Services, A W Edwards Pty Limited and UNSW Australia.
The two equal runners-up:
- “Pixie”. Reason: "Because it picks things up". By Menucha Brook, Yeshiva College, Bondi.
- “Harriet”. Reason: “Because Harriet can carry it.” By Rose Gibson, St Mary St Joseph Primary School, Maroubra.
Prizes were awarded by Ms Camilla D’Arcy, Assistant Marketing Manager of A W Edwards Pty Limited, and Dr Craig Lewis, Prince of Wales Hospital Cancer Services. Dr Don Perlgut, Executive Officer of The Bright Alliance, chaired the ceremony, which was attended by parents of the winners, and staff from Prince of Wales Hospital Cancer Services, A W Edwards Pty Limited, the South Eastern Sydney Local Health District and Johnstaff, the building construction project manager.
The construction crane, now towers over the Bright Alliance building site which will house the Prince of Wales Hospital’s Nelune Comprehensive Cancer Centre, UNSW’s Scientia Clinical Research and The Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network expansion.
