They put their Heart in, raising close to 470k
A record has been set for Hobart’s Heart 107.3 Give Me 5 for Kids. They raised a record-breaking total of $466,222 in 2014 to support the Royal Hobart Hospital Children’s Ward.
Heart 107.3 Breakfast team of Kim Napier and David Noonan, and the passionate local community of Southern Tasmania got right behind the fundraising efforts including a “House with Heart” which saw a three-bedroom family home designed and constructed in Glebe Hill.
Other fundraising for Heart 107.3’s Give Me 5 for Kids included a Gala Ball held at Wrest Point, Western and Eastern Shore Wheelie Bin Walks, and the Qantas ‘Flight with Heart’ as well as several events held at Sorrell RSL.
Funds raised this year will enable the Royal Hobart Hospital Children’s Ward to purchase specialised paediatric equipment and provide support for the families of unwell children when they need it most.
SCA Hobart GM Damon Wise said: “We are very appreciative of the massive support our fundraising efforts have generated in the Tasmanian community. The passion of Kim and Dave and our whole team plays a key role in the success of Give Me 5 For Kids each year. There is no better feeling than raising money for the purchase of equipment for the amazing team at the Royal Hobart Hospital, to care for our sick children.”
