Ap­peal­ing to­tal raised

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS - Nagam­bie CFA and com­mu­nity mem­bers got right be­hind the Royal Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal Good Fri­day Ap­peal.

More than $30 000 was raised in Sey­mour alone for this year’s Royal Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal Good Fri­day Ap­peal.

Sey­mour Fire Sta­tion was a hive of ac­tiv­ity on the day, as vol­un­teers gath­ered be­fore em­bark­ing on a door knock spree through the town.

‘‘We had a re­ally good day,’’ or­gan­iser Mick San­der­son said.

‘‘We raised about $26 800, which is about the same as other years, and then Wool­worths’ to­tal of $3800 was added to ours, which took us over the $30 000 mark.’’

Vol­un­teers from the fire brigade, the lo­cal SES unit and girl guides walked the streets of Sey­mour seek­ing do­na­tions.

The mid­night to­tal for the ap­peal was a record $17 605 662.

‘‘Af­ter 86 years of fundrais­ing for The Royal Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal, the Good Fri­day Ap­peal is al­ways over­whelmed by the in­cred­i­ble sup­port of the com­mu­nity and this year we’re thrilled to an­nounce the 2017 mid­night fundrais­ing to­tal is $17 605 662,’’ ap­peal di­rec­tor Anne Ran­dall said.
