SCA’s annual Give Me 5 for Kids fundraiser launched in June this year, with Triple M Hobart again leading their community in a huge campaign, raising $337,557.04 for the Royal Hobart Hospital’s Children’s Ward.
The Triple M GM5FK team presented the donation directly to the Royal Hobart Hospital this morning for use in the Children’s Ward and associated paediatric departments, live on Hobart radio.
With key fundraising events including a scenic flight of Tasmania in a QantasLink plane, wheelie bin walks on the Eastern and Western Shores and numerous broadcasts in the greater Hobart community, the GM5FK team were again stunned with the amount of community support, both from individuals and businesses.
The funds raised in this year’s efforts will go towards the purchasing of much needed paediatric equipment and services to benefit Tasmania’s sick children including specialist paediatric monitoring devices and outpatient equipment that will service maternity and paediatric patients, state-wide.
Executive General Manager SCA – Tasmania, Ally Bradley, says, “I am so grateful for Hobart’s generosity again as we announce this fantastic donation for the Royal Hobart Hospital. Tasmanian’s really are generous individuals and as a mother of two boys I say thank you to the team here at SCA who have put in tireless hours to bring this all together.”
