Over the years we have raised over $900,000 for charities and we have provided additional help and services in kind. We are committed to continuing our involvement in our community.

Royal Children’s Hospital

We have raised over $850,000 for the Royal Children’s Hospital.

In 2011 our Victorian branch once again broke its previous fundraising record.

"Congratulations to the team in Victoria for again exceeding all expectations with their donation to the Royal Children’s Hospital – you have done an amazing job by raising in excess of $74,000 for the 2011 Good Friday Appeal."

Richard Andrews

Chief Executive

We raise these funds by running a charity golf day which is supported by around 160 of our customers every year. This outstanding turnout reflects our strong customer relationships built on our culture of family values and high ethical standards. With the event booked out well in advance, it is a great day for golf as well as supporting a worthy charity.

Cutting Edges

The Good Friday Appeal is a unique fundraising activity that brings together people from all parts of the community in a very special way. The common goal is to raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, and to ensure that all children with life threatening illnesses receive the best possible medical and clinical care.

The Appeal is a non-political, non-denominational organization that exists solely to financially support the Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne.

The Good Friday Appeal is known for the fun, enthusiasm and ingenuity of those involved. Supporters can be seen conducting billycart races or ferret and yabby races, holding a gala ball in a grand hotel, running a golf day or shaking collection cans. The Appeal’s strength lies in the thousands of volunteers who give their time, expertise and creativity to ensure that events are successful and the rewards are great.
