Cam­paign ex­ceeds tar­get

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion -

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.
