Campaign exceeds target
THE Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation smashed 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 actually raised $90,745.
Thanks to the Christmas Lights campaign – supported by Community Newspaper Group – and other contributions, 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 highest street fundraisers were Jaden Warner and Clayton Reimers from Lyon Road in Aubin Grove, who raised $10,806.
