Be on the lookout, Good Friday Appeal volunteers will be out and about looking for donations tomorrow.

Deniliquin has raised $430,093.57 for the appeal since 1982, and raised $17,579.47 last year.

With tin rattlers and the annual raffle, coordinato­r Faye Mills is hoping to get the same or better this year.

Raffle tickets have been on sale outside Deniliquin Central IGA, but time is now running out.

Tickets are $1 each, and prizes up for grabs include kitchenwar­e and appliances, beauty packs, linens, luggage and more.

The raffle will be drawn at the Deniliquin RSL Club tomorrow night.

Donations will also be sought at the Hardinge St oval tomorrow, when the traditiona­l clash between the Deniliquin Rams and Finley Cats is played.

Since 1931, the Good Friday Appeal has been dedicated to fundraisin­g for The Royal Children’s Hospital so that it can continue to provide world class care for children in Victoria and beyond.

Over its long and proud history, the Good Friday Appeal has provided over $399 million to The Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne.
