The HAB is the oldest and largest volunteer agency at BHB. They donate over 40,000 hours of service annually, and have contributed millions of dollars in support of the hospitals since their inception in 1953. The most recognisable faces of HAB are the ‘Pink Ladies and Men’ (adult volunteers) and candy stripers (students) you will see around the hospital, from the front information desk and Pink Café to the wards.

Areas where HAB volunteers make a difference:

  • Chapel
  • Continuing Care Unit
  • Hospitality cart

  • Clinics
