The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

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.

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.
