THE Perth Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion ex­ceeded its fundrais­ing tar­get in last year’s Christ­mas Lights cam­paign. Orig­i­nally hop­ing to raise $87,000 to help buy a New­born Emer­gency Trans­port Am­bu­lance, the foun­da­tion in­stead raised $90,745. Thanks to the Christ­mas Lights cam­paign – sup­ported by Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group – and con­tri­bu­tions from a num­ber of other donors, the foun­da­tion was able to pur­chase the $180,000 am­bu­lance. It will be used to trans­fer about 900 tiny new­borns to hos­pi­tal for in­ten­sive care each year. Marie Vran­jes was the high­est fundraiser with a to­tal of $12,084. The year’s high­est street fundrais­ers were Jaden Warner and Clay­ton Reimers from Lyon Road in Au­bin Grove, who raised $10,806.
