During the 1950s and 1960s nurses visited the Rockhampton Show to raise funds for the Centaur Memorial Fund.

Only 64 of the 332 people on board survived. The fund was used to provide scholarships to Queensland nurses to assist with their training. Sister Haynes was a Tutor Sister responsible for training nurses at the hospital.
