Gippslanders give generously to Good Friday Appeal

• South Gippsland’s CFA brigade members gave generously of their time and funds whilst the region’s residents and visitors to the area gave liberally of their money to help raise funds for the annual Good Friday Appeal – which locally raised a record-breaking total of $21,461. Pictured while fundraising are Foster CFA members Paul Austin, Captain David Jones, Kian Brewer, Brian Mellor, Sarah O’Hehir, James McIntyre, Rachal Armstrong and Daniel Bugg.

MEMBERS of South Gippsland’s Fire Brigades did a tremendous job of raising money across the district on Good Friday for the annual 86th Royal Children’s Hospital Appeal.

The figures raised in each district by the CFA volunteers – inclusive of proceeds from the shaking of cans and selling of raffle tickets – were $5090 in Foster, $5579 in Fish Creek, $3463 in Yarram, $846 in Hedley, $204 in Welshpool, $2343 in Toora, and $416 in Meeniyan. Additional donations brought the grand total to $21,461 – which is a wonderful effort!

Area Manager Jan Hamilton is very grateful to members of the South Gippsland Fire Brigades Group for their commitment to raising funds for the Royal Children’s Hospital Appeal and wishes to thank everyone who donated to the cause and all those who helped in the fundraising efforts.

In total, this year’s Good Friday Appeal has raised, on a local basis, $21,461 which is a record-breaking figure and one which South Gippslanders and contributing visitors should be very proud of!

“These are very trying times for everyone and we really appreciate the efforts and generosity of all the volunteers and the donators who have made this wonderful result possible,” said Jan
