OCEAN Grovers are being asked to dig deep for the annual Royal Children’s Hospital Appeal.
Local organisations will be rattling tins for the worthy cause which raises much needed funds for Melbourne’s kids hospital.
Last year a record $16,405,534.65 was raised.
To donate, head to www.goodfridayappeal.com.au/donate, or phone 9292 1166, send a cheque/money order to Good Friday Appeal PO Box 14744 Melbourne Vic 8001 or at any NAB branch.
OCEAN Grove is gearing up for the annual Good Friday Appeal being held this week.
Raising money for the Royal Children’s Hospital, the Ocean Grove Bowling Club, The Mex and Collendina Caravan Park will be holding events, with the CFA collecting donations throughout the day.
“Because of how big our town has become, we will be focusing on shaking our tins in main areas such as shopping centres and main intersections. We will then be taking donations back to The Mex to count, where we will be doing a live cross with Channel Seven,” Fourth Lieutenant Peter Baxter said. Collendina Caravan Park will be holding their 20th in-house raffle and be holding children’s events for their clients. The Mex will be holding their last auction ever this Thursday night. The popular event has been running for 13 years and has raised over $142,000 for the appeal. Call 5255 1959 for more information. Ocean Grove Bowling Club will be holding their annual auction at 7:00PM with proceeds going to the Good Friday Appeal. Beforehand from 5.30PM a two course meal and dessert will be on offer. For tickets, visit reception during office hours or call 52551540
Last year, a combined effort of $47,000 was raised by Ocean Grove.
