Good Friday 25th March 2016

Good Friday Appeal

The 85th annual Good Friday Appeal brings together the community to raise money for the Royal Children's Hospital.

The strength of the appeal lies in the thousands of volunteers who give freely of their time and their talent. Many groups and organisations fundraise throughout the year, in order to publicly present their grand totals during a live telethon broadcast by Channel 7.

The Channel 7 telethon is an opportunity for people to view the miracles performed at the hospital, to ring through their donations, and in many instances hear their contribution acknowledged publicly.

Kids Day Out

The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre will be transformed into a wonderland for kids, with a giant roller-skating rink, sports clinics, the popular Teddy Bear Hospital, kids cooking classes, rides, music and dancing and so much more.

Cost: Free | Gold Coin Donation
When: 10am - 6pm
