Horsham raises $58,000 for hospital
Horsham Royal Childen’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal co-ordinator June Clissold has thanked the region’s residents and visitors for their contribution to this year’s fundraising event.
The official Horsham total is $58,550, which will go towards helping some of the state’s sickest children.
“I’m very happy with our contribution. We were extremely busy on Good Friday, with $36,000 coming in through the fire station. It was count, count, count all day,” Mrs Clissold said.
“Thank you to the people of Horsham for your generosity.” Mrs Clissold has raised money for the hospital for decades and has been the appeal’s Horsham area manager for the past 10 years.
Horsham district raised $42,000 in 2017. Mrs Clissold told The Weekly Advertiser before Good Friday that she did not have a fundraising target for this year but would take ‘whatever we can get’.
She said the region’s residents continued to dig deep despite the many important causes and organisations in need of money.
This year’s appeal raised more than $18-million for the Royal Children’s Hospital.
