Fashioning $91k from fancy dress
SNOW White, Mickey Mouse and several Santa Clauses were among many Transperth staff to don fancy dress and raise money for children’s charity Radio Lollipop earlier this year.
The volunteer organisation, now in its 20th year, released a statement last month revealing they raised more than $91, 432 on Uniform Free Day on March 18 by encouraging commuters, businesses and schools to ditch their uniforms and dress up.
Radio Lollipop director Jeanette Shorto said they were grateful Transperth had supported the event since it began 20 years ago.
“Over the 20 years of our partnership (with Transperth) we have totalled more than $1 million to help improve the lives of sick children.”
The charity entertains sick kids in hospitals from Joondalup to Kalgoorlie, and the name Radio Lollipop is an acronym for “lots of laughter in place of pain”.
