Give Me 5 for Kids raises over 2.5 Mil
Southern Cross Austereo’s Give Me 5 for Kids raised $2,552,004 for their 2015 appeal.
Give Me 5 started in the mid 90’s as a coin drive and has grown to raise $17 million nationally, through SCA’s regional radio and TV brands.
Southern Cross Austereo’s, Head of Regional Media Rick Lenarcic said: “Over the past 21 years, Give Me 5 for Kids has given regional kids the chance to stay close to home and family whilst receiving treatment at local hospitals, through the purchase of equipment and provision of services from our local hospitals’ wishlists.
Special thanks must go to our dedicated staff who work tirelessly throughout the year, not just in June, to make the appeal a success. We also recognise the generosity of time and resources from individuals within our communities who contribute to the appeal – without these people Give Me 5 for Kids would not be the success it is.”
Give Me 5 for Kids is rolled out in June and raises money to support over 40 local children’s hospital wards and children’s charities from Darwin to Hobart, Gosford to Bunbury.
